Over the years we’ve come across schools and establishments utilising their Sensory Rooms in innovative and creative ways to transport users to another world, time or place at any time throughout the year.
We were therefore seriously impressed by the work by Ickburgh School in Hackney with their winter themed Sensory Room. It was created using Experia’s M.I.L.E® (Multisensory Interactive Learning Environment) technology which allows them to create scenarios and use Sensory Equipment to
create new worlds, tell stories and teach lessons regardless of age or ability. Not only can these be used time and time again, they can also be shared with establishments that have M.I.L.E installed.
M.I.L.E makes learning more engaging as it combines light, sound, video, vibration, moving air, different aromas and even atmospheric conditions and integrates easily with new or existing components from the Experia IRiS (Interactive Reward System) range.
As we entered the Sensory Room at Ickburgh School, Christmas music filled the room whilst a
large video projection of a snow scene unfolded right in front of our eyes. Bubble Tubes, Fibre Optics and Light Spreaders were all set to a vibrant snowy white - all of which playing a part in making the occupants of the room feel like they were in an icy landscape. The decorations in the room further enhanced the feeling of a winter wonderland and we are thrilled that so much effort has been made to create a truly magical space for the students and staff.
