What’s New: Sharing an immersive, technology-based approach to education, Intel’s Tech Learning Lab begins a multi-city experiential tour today for students and teachers. The nationwide tour starts at the Bronx Academy of Letters in New York City.

“Intel is addressing the needs of educators through advanced technology that enables effective and dynamic classroom experiences and drives students’ skills development to prepare them for the demands of the future workforce.”
–Raysana Hurtado, education segment manager at Intel

What It Is: Intel’s Tech Learning Lab is a custom-built mobile container truck outfitted with virtual reality (VR) demo stations, powerful PCs, augmented reality (AR) and Internet of Things (IoT) smart whiteboards. Accompanied by immersive, hands-on workshops featuring artificial intelligence, coding and robotics, it will make stops at schools and other education institutions through Dec. 15.

Why It’s Important: Intel will bring innovative teaching methods to educators to help them build the leaders of tomorrow by developing fundamental career skills like communication, collaboration, self-awareness, problem-solving, critical thinking and more.

Today’s students live in a digital world. Modern teaching methods need to reflect this, with technology as a seamless integration applied across all areas of instruction. Despite the indisputable need for a sophisticated workforce, schools across the country are stuck using technologies and instructional models of the past to prepare students for careers of the future.

The Tech Learning Lab tour is designed to engage with educators and spark conversations that go beyond the classroom to fuel curiosity about the role of technology and its impact on our world and daily lives. Hands-on virtual lessons spanning arts, science and other subjects will introduce students, teachers and administrators to the power of technology as an instructional tool for the 21st century.

Why Now: The U.S. education system is changing, with drastic cuts to arts education; the rise of science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM); and innovative new models. Until now, classroom technology has been used as an add-on to existing instructional methods rather than as tools to improve or revolutionize instruction.

Cutting-edge technology-based educational programs can emphasize deeper collaboration and engagement, versus student instruction on software that likely will be obsolete by the time they enter the workforce. The future classroom is one that incorporates powerful technology and encourages creative approaches to learning, supporting education goals today and for tomorrow.

Where It will Visit: Intel’s Tech Learning Lab continues at schools across the country, with visits planned to:

  • Weston High School, in Weston, Mass. (Nov. 7-9)
  • Ron Clark Academy, in Atlanta (Nov. 15-16)
  • Design39Campus, in San Diego (Nov. 29-30)
  • McClymonds High School, in Oakland, Calif. (week of Dec. 3rd)
  • Oakland Tech, in Oakland, Calif. (week of Dec. 3rd)
