Immanuel College is a multi-award-winning school attracting over 1,000 educational visitors each year to explore innovative practice. Recently, its new Imagination Centre has become a place where students immerse themselves in experiential learning. Gifted and talented students extend and enrich their learning as they design and discover solutions using creativity and critical thinking. STEM-inspired learning is promoted with Lego robotics, Makey-Makey, OzBots, Lil Bots through to virtual reality cameras for students to create their own 3D virtual worlds.
Meanwhile, Immanuel’s new learning management system integrates all digital tools in the school, and the virtual learning environment enables teachers to promote student engagement, facilitate greater student independence and leverage social media skills to enhance communication and student collaboration. Also, inquiry-based learning has stepped up a level, with students designing solutions for problems from the other side of the world.
