Studied discussions have found that learning environment of the 21st century need to be collaborative, creative and adaptable to individual needs. We, at the GIIS SMART Campus, have researched these studies and incorporated many ideas in our design which will go a long way in helping shape global citizens of the future.
Our SMART Campus is a learning space that has incorporated ideas from leading architects from USA, Japan, Australia and Singapore. Over 100 teachers from GIIS also pooled in from their educational experience to add to the ideation process. As a result, a Campus customised thoroughly for needs of the NextGen Learners came into being.
Shaped like a ‘Nest’ where a student will be groomed from a fledgling to a feathered stage, the disabled-friendly building is strategically engineered to include technology for better learning outcomes.
The student-centric campus merged elegant design ideas with best practices within the industry to produce great benefits for student pedagogy. Traditional learning approaches find a careful balance with technology-assisted methods, and it is recognised that student interactions contribute a lot to the entire learning process.
The entire campus is wired with an extensive high speed fibre network powered by an ultra high speed 40GB per second LAN designed to provide connectivity to over 6500 wired devices.
Students and teachers will get high speed access to internet with 2Gb broadband connections. Classrooms have Smart Boards with Apple TV, Wifi connectivity, audio-visual systems and projectors to ensure students and teachers have a collaborative and creative approach to teaching and learning in this new day and age.
Being a disabled-friendly campus is our way of integrating all sections of the society into the mainstream.
