Date: Mon, 09 Jul, 2018
Dubai, UAE, June 2018: Brighton College Dubai will encourage creative and collaborative learning with its state of the art Creative Learning Centre (CLC), which will launch as part of the school in September 2018.
A creative learning environment that boasts entirely flexible classroom space, recording facility and control room, the Creative Learning Centre in Dubai will be a true reflection of that recently opened at Brighton College in the UK. Created specifically to encourage teachers and learners to break away from traditional teaching techniques, the Centre supports collaborative, creative learning. The Creative Learning Centre enhances the opportunity for pupils to learn the art of public speaking, creative writing and presentation skills, and will be a dedicated space to help pupils thoughts and creativity flow more freely.
Developed with technology in mind, the Creative Learning Centre will feature hi-tech Microsoft hubs, recording and camera equipment to encourage presentation skills, and furniture that supports the use of tablets and gadgets. The Centre and its use of technology will also give ample room for play and experimentation, which will help pupils develop real world skills as well as academic knowledge.
Marco Longmore, Head Master at Brighton College Dubai commented, “The Creative Learning Centre will allow teachers to break away from the traditional classroom set up and teaching techniques, and will provide an environment where they can inspire and engage in creative learning with the new generation. We are very much looking forward to seeing the positive, creative impact it has on the pupils in Dubai throughout the next academic year.”
