A New Digital Learning Lab for Mørkhøj School in Denmark

The Mørkhøj Skole in Søborg, Denmark has just opened a brand new, state of the art Digital Learning Lab that will contribute and further the learning of all of their pupils.

With funding from the community engagement grant, the creation of the learning centre will enhance the students' learning of STEM skills through the introduction of:

  • VR equipment - to introduce students to the fascinating world of virtual reality

  • Lego Mindstorm Robots - these help students to understand programming and data collecting

  • An Apple iMac - for editing the digital school newsletter

  • Apple LED screens - for enhancing IT and design skills

  • A Digital Projector - which will allow students and teachers to share thoughts and presentations more effectively

  • Webcams - for conversation and possible cooperation with other schools

Earlier in the year the grand opening was attended by students, members of the PPG Søborg team and even the local mayor! The school is immensely forward thinking and holds STEM education in the highest regard, their mission says it all:

We are ambitious, think ahead and strive for the best. We want to make a connection between technology and learning.

All pupils, parents and teachers must have an ambitious approach to innovative learning processes. In this way we will be able to get creative and engaged citizens who will be able to contribute positively to strengthen our common future.

The Gladsaxe community has ten schools and four of which already run digital learning centres of this calibre. Mørkhøj School knows that allowing pupils to gain STEM skills is of upmost importance. The school wants to encourage the pupils to be innovative and interested in creating programs by using digital resources in order to meet the future needs for labor skills in this area.
