Entry Description

The Digital Learning Centre (DLC) at this elementary School is the first of its kind in Taiwan. It creates a holistic learning space and modernize teaching and learning for 10-12 year olds. A pictorial learning environment has been created from interactive multimedia technology combined with commercial designs. Spatial integration advances cognitive learning through intuition and application of color and available digital technology. There are three zone: Anime Zone, Reading Zone, Three Dimensional Audiovisual Zone. Unsupervised learning is also achievable whilst playing in this multifunctional digital environment. This design incorporates contemporary design techniques to a traditional setting to support the integration of human wisdom in modern education. There are other independent areas in this zone to be explored where volumes of books are shelved and deliberate gaps between structures to allow appropriate supervision without interfering with the autonomy of children actively engaged in the reading zone.
