We are very excited to be launching the ‘Greenfield School in the Cloud’ project this week! It has been a lot of hard work these past months developing, managing and co-ordinating all of the work and planning that has taken place to get us ready to open the doors to our new creative spaces on Thursday 13th February 2014!
The room has been especially considered and designed with an indoor/ outdoor feel that has artificial turf on the floor, bird boxes, computers in the grass and seed markers for evaluation and feedback. All developed to create an unusual enquiry and project space where Professor Sugata Mitra’s vision to explore his TED prize winning idea of ‘The School in the Cloud’ can take place.
We are very excited to be developing and managing this work a Greenfield Arts with Greenfield Community College and many of our local and regional partners. One of the exciting things about having the space in the community arts centre, for the school and wider community to use, will be discovering how young people access the space and their desire to enquiry and explore their learning independently.
Take a look at some of the photos that show the transformation of the spaces in the Arts Centre to create the wonderful new Room13 ‘School in the Cloud’ SOLEs, enquiry and project area.
