New technology to unlock student potential

Newton Moore Education Support Centre, WA

Newton Moore Education Support Centre (ESC) in Bunbury is a special school for students with physical and intellectual disabilities. It prides itself on taking an innovative approach to education, and aims to equip students with the skills they need to meet the challenges they will face outside of school. One of its priorities is its Community Work Centre program that enables students to gain certificates in manufacturing, agrifoods, office and retail.

The school now seeks support to purchase new technology and equipment that will be able to be used by all students, regardless of their abilities. The technology includes a virtual reality and augmented reality system for the classroom, which will allow students to view and understand subjects through personal experience. For instance, the VR technology will enable students to experience crossing the road or catching a bus before undergoing real-life transport training, as well as experience virtual “excursions” such as a dive on the Great Barrier Reef or a space walk. The school also wants to purchase a 3D printer for its classrooms, to help students learn skills before moving into the work centres.

Your support would also enable the school to purchase a CNC router and a laser cutter for use in the work centres. Coupled with the use of eye gaze technology, this equipment will enable students to create products, communicate with each other and develop skills in a way rarely seen in education settings. “Sometimes it’s hard to emphasise how this technology is an absolute game-changer for us,” the school says. “We really want to push the accessibility from design to production for all of our students who haven’t had the ability to do so before now.”
