The way students learn is different today, and technology and research continue to change the way education works best. With DIRTT, a school's physical space can change too: "DIRTT Walls offer the ability to adapt to changes large and small. They support today's technology and whatever comes tomorrow." One recent example of a learning space created by DIRTT is the Classroom of the Future.
Green Learning Center Education Environment
To prove just how dedicated DIRTT is to education solutions, the company manned its model Chicago Green Learning Center (GLC) with a team of award-winning students who spoke to visitors at DIRTT facilities, located across the street from NeoCon 2013. Everything in the Green Learning Center was tailored to the needs and desires of teachers, administrators, and students, which is exactly how all DIRTT education projects work-"DIRTT produces no standard products."
Using proprietary ICE technology, 3D software that creates interactive spaces, DIRTT creates "learning spaces that integrate any and all technology while keeping it accessible for maintenance and updates." Best of all, DIRTT Walls work with existing buildings, so cities and municipalities can update heritage schools without losing their historic character. Each side of DIRTT walls works independently too, so they work for neighboring classrooms and/or offices with different needs. Schools can also incorporate Breathe Living Walls, which liven up any classroom by bringing nature indoors.
