1 4D South Staffordshire College Steve Wileman - Chief Learning Technologist 4D Space In Further Education

2 Our 4D room creates a fully-immersive learning environment which allows students to experience a situation - rather than trying to imagine it. Themes are produced by using LED lighting, giant projection and surround sound and include interactive content to allow users to fully engage. By changing lighting and content, its mood can be altered to reflect the subject. Role-play, debates and more engaging methods of assessment have been triggered as a result. South Staffordshire College Steve Wileman - Chief Learning Technologist What is 4D Creative Technology

3 Following the introduction of the 4D space at South Staffordshire College, The immersive space is changing the way we teach, learn and communicate to our 21st Century learners making the whole learning experience more entertaining, rewarding, engaging. The technology is having a impact particularly in practical subjects such as Public Services and is driving up their success rates !! South Staffordshire College Steve Wileman - Chief Learning Technologist What is 4D Creative Technology

4 The 4D environment transforms classrooms into interactive and immersive experiences that facilitate flexible and experiential approaches to education. Pupils are able to influence, develop and take control of their own learning, whilst the role of the tutor evolves to become one of a facilitator, collaborator, producer and author. A cross curricular tool that encourages creative thinking and peer led learning, young people can programme the whole space to create their own immersive experiences..

5 4D Cross College Uses Provides opportunities to move beyond teaching & learning in the classroom & offers a new tool for cross college communications 4D College Wide Campus Open Event Induction Learner Journey Curriculum

6 4D fits with our new state of the art Cannock Campus modern and vibrant learning environment Campus Open Event / Induction Content Usage Corporate Theme Interactive curriculum relevant themes Festival & Celebration themes Local business themes As soon as the learners enters the building Start of the Learner Journey Set the standards

7 Set the “e” standards Virtual Tour of facilities Welcome from Principal Introduction From Campus Head / Meet The Staff Demonstrate 4D at Start Of Learner Journey Campus Open Event Induction

8 Build visuals of the Learner Journey specific to what a user is querying or searching for Promote, engage and collaborate Learner Journey Equality & Diversity themes, Awareness raising eg WWI commemorations Content Usage Visits ongoing & throughout the learner journey Throughout the Learner Journey Expand the standards

9 Local Partner Engagement - School/ business visits Learner Work into 4D themes Comic / Sports Relief “splat” sessions To actively promote equality and diversity and tackle discrimination Demonstrate 4D throughout Learner Journey Learner Journey

10 Completes 4D everywhere Design, organize, collaborate, engage, stretch 2Silver The 4d space has been used to engage learners from diverse groups - from staff inductions to learners with learning difficulties and disabilities. Themes include subjects as diverse as dinosaurs, ancient Egypt, rain forests,World War I centenary commemorations and crime scene investigation. Content Curriculum Curriculum Develop the 4D standards in the classroom

11 Learning Materials -referenced to the curriculum External Content – “Hooks” Beauty Demonstrations Learners are now creating their own themes and ICT learners produced their assignments for end of course programming outputs to be displayed in their very own interactive themes & projects 4D in the Curriculum Curriculum

12 Now & Where Next? Drive up 4D usage across College CPD bookings How to guides Links to Free resources & tutorials 85% of teaching staff attended a demonstration during launch and follow up CPD sessions delivered throughout the year Help in an overall aim of refinement, improvement and potential evolution of 21 st Century Learning Not Just For Learners CPD for Staff

13 CPD sessions have shown staff how to create their own playlist of themes and use interactive switches to trigger key media elements. Relevant Images and music/video are the only content needed - the software does the rest. Since roll-out more than 45 themes have been created. No other 4D space in the UK has generated this amount of themes in such a short space of time. IMPACT

14 Traditionally assessments had been undertaken via written assignments and discussions. When they were incorporated into the 4D room, they allowed learners to immerse themselves in the role they were researching and use a variety of new and more engaging methods, such as news reports, documentaries and debates. Public Services, a subject not always associated with cutting-edge technology, immediately began using the resource and improved engagement and learning has ensued. IMPACT Living the experience: Public Services learners tackle a crime scene investigation.

15 Public Services classes saw a considerable improvement in retention and success at Cannock. At the end of the last academic year, they achieved 3% above national benchmark for achievement. The cohort was an average group, with several learners requiring additional support, so did not have an ‘above average’ recruitment standard. In turn, this boosted the number of high grades achieved on Public Services courses from 38% to 65%. Public Services learner feedback : “The 4D room is great. We can get out of the classroom and be anywhere we want to be. It helps for us set the scene and increases our understanding of situations we would otherwise not be able to experience”. IMPACT
