Interactive primary teaching classroom
Deakin’s Melbourne Burwood Campus offers early childhood and primary education students access to interactive, flexible learning spaces.
The interactive primary teaching classroom in Building N provides our pre-service teachers with an engaging, interactive experience, just like a real classroom!
The room is set up with a carpeted area, where students can relax on bean bags whilst participating in small group work tasks.
A huge 3m screen can be viewed from any point in the room and a pivoting whiteboard allows pre-service teachers to practice teaching to their peers.
There are usb ports to charge phones and plenty of powerpoints to charge up your laptop. Standing, ergonomic desks and a break out area with bright coloured ottomans make the room a fun and engaging space to learn.
A hard floor area in half of the space allows students to experiment with paint & clay with easy clean up.
An oven, cooktop and sink are also part of this space, which are used for cooking Anzac biscuits and damper as part of our History curriculum.
Games, puzzles, blocks, playdough, paint, puppets, glue sticks and texts are just some of the fun craft tools you will find in the space that’ll help you explore and refine your teaching practice for your future students.
