So many out-of-school experiences are beyond school budgets, time and availability. However, these experiences provide significant benefits; such as enhanced engagement, motivation, understanding, knowledge retention and personal development. For pupils, school is more than just gaining an education, it is also the source for developing life skills and life-time memories. Although hugely beneficial, simple off-site trips can be a challenge. Immersive teaching through Gener8 spaces offers a great year-round solution which complements outdoor experiences, to enhance learning outcomes.

Technology such as Gener8’s immersive learning environments have brought a new dimension to experiential learning by bringing real world experiences into the classroom. As the name suggests, an immersive learning environment allows students to become fully involved. High definition wrap graphics are projected around the surrounding walls and floor, and mixed this with ambient lighting, sound and other effects to stimulate conscious and subconscious learning. There are no isolating headsets involved - the experience is all around you.

The spaces are easy to use and extremely flexible – unused corridors, storage areas and ICT rooms have been transformed into Gener8 spaces, which can be used for a range of curricular and extracurricular activities. Teachers use or edit pre-loaded content, or alternatively they can import their own existing content, to make a real difference across all ages, curriculum and abilities. The school’s teaching community receive full training with the option of helpdesk support and refreshed content into the future.

With changing classrooms and technology, it is a challenge for schools to stay on the cusp of innovation with limited budgets. Teachers are under real pressure to work on their own digital skills, support the development of their students whilst delivering the very best possible learning experiences. There is often challenge to financially get the most from tight budgets and look for assets that can be used in multiple ways – Gener8 rooms do this by addressing curriculum and pastoral issues, acting as a showpiece and revenue generator. Partnering with organisations such as Gener8 helps schools achieve their objectives with edtech, while helping children to aspire, learn and understand in a very cost effective manner.
