Ocean Breeze Elementary Hosts “Classroom of the Future” Event with Connection and The Douglas Stewart Company
MADISON, Wis. (Nov. 8, 2017) – Technology is ubiquitous in education, but it’s not always clear how solutions fit practically into the classroom. To assist educators with implementing makerspaces and environments that nurture STEM/STEAM skills, Brevard Public Schools, Connection and The Douglas Stewart Company collaborated on a “Classroom of the Future” event. The interactive gathering took place Nov. 2 at Ocean Breeze Elementary in Indian Harbour Beach, Fla. and featured tools focused on virtual and augmented reality, coding, design, video, and collaborative furniture.
“Classroom of the Future” was designed to inform educators about available resources, demonstrate what a modern classroom could look like and how to implement emerging technology.
“Our teachers are eager to try out new tools and classroom designs,” said Pam Aulakh, manager of educational technology at Brevard Public Schools. “The ‘Classroom of the Future’ event was the perfect opportunity to explore novel ideas and chart new visions for learning.”
The event featured two rooms. One room provided opportunities to interact with the products and collaborate with colleagues. The other room was used for vendor training and discussions with product experts on how technology can be used in the classroom.
The teachers who attended received in-service credits.
