Academy 360 is a Gaia partner school in Sunderland. As part of the managed service provision Gaia has sponsored ‘a discovery space’ to help promote innovation with technology. This is not unique. Gaia has sponsored such spaces elsewhere. You can see the case study of our contribution at SGS Berkeley Green UTC here and in April we will be establishing a similar centre at Prendergast School (Leathersellers Federation) in Lewisham.
Our aim in sponsoring these innovation spaces is to provide a hub where teachers can explore the potential of immersive and interactive technologies, especially the power of technology enriched visual learning. In the setting at Academy 360 we have particularly focused upon the use of the Gaia 3D Viewer and green screen video production.
Here is the students’ video, which shows the power of video production to capture learning across history and literature.
