LEVROS is a software package which allows users to explore leading edge schools and get close to the latest thinking in innovative learning space design.
Users can explore five leading edge schools from around the world including the Australian School for Science and Maths and the Birmingham concept school.
By allowing users to explore the latest learning spaces and delivering training around learning space design, LEVROS is a powerful resource for those who want to engage anyone in the school design process.
LEVROS includes a series of workshops which were developed with the Institute of Education
The LEVROS package includes an option to have your school designs built into the software, featuring the same powerful technology used to showcase the world’s most innovative schools.
“The idea of mixing CAD design with games technology is very exciting. It is an imaginative approach to engaging all those involved in school building designs. Everyone can share the experience and play with the best school models locally, nationally and internationally. It allows them to bring these ideas into the designs of their own. The concept of playing with designs is engaging for young people and an excellent way of getting their feedback.”
Professor Nick Peacey of the Institute of Education
“LEVROS has the potential to engage 21st century learners through its multi-media virtual-physical capabilities which match students’ rapidly emerging socially networked realities. LEVROS can map the virtual with the physical, as students do in their relationships and increasingly in their learning. It remains to be seen how rapidly these emerging technologies are taken up in the classrooms of the future.”
Dr Kenn Fisher, Director of Learning at global architectural company Woods Bagot
LEVROS is a software package which allows users to explore high quality 3D versions of school designs. The user chooses their avatar from child and adult options, before exploring and interacting with the design. Users can add, move and delete furniture.
LEVROS was developed by MOOFU Education and some of the world’s most innovative learning space designers such as Dr Kenn Fisher, The Institute of Education, Birmingham Local Education Partnership and Woods Baggot Architects.
LEVROS allows users to explore five leading edge schools from around the world and get close to the latest thinking in terms of school design. Voice-overs explain innovative features and help to engage students and teachers in the school design process. LEVROS also features a series of workshops developed with the Institute of Education which explore the principles of designing an effective learning space.
In addition, clients can have thier school or school design added to the software package. LEVROS provides a powerful way to engage all stakeholders with the design of a new school, by letting them take control and explore a new school design before it's built.
