What is a modern learning environment? How will it change the way that our children will learn? Will there be desks?
All of these questions and more will be answered at CORE Education’s Modern Learning Environments Expo on June 8th at the Air Force Museum.
“The last 2 years have been very difficult for educators and families in Christchurch. We want to show the parents and children of Christchurch, especially the families that are affected by the Ministry of Education's renewal programme, just how exciting the future for schooling in Christchurch really is,” says CORE Education CEO Ali Hughes
“As part of our charitable activities we are inviting world class educators, suppliers and speakers to Christchurch to showcase the best in design, technology, furniture and teaching practice to inspire all of our school communities about the possibilities” she says.
Visitors will see a full-scale modern learning environment in action, with all of the new technologies, and design characteristics that will be on offer to schools that are rebuilding in the wake of the Canterbury Earthquakes, they will be able to talk to teachers and education professionals about how the environments differ from traditional education settings, and see children working in the spaces.
The Expo is completely free to all visitors and the vendors who have their wares on show are all specifically invited to showcase the best of the best on offer in New Zealand.
