The month of January and February 2012 is off to a rousing start at the National Institute of Education with these latest announcements already creating a buzz in the community…
Students can now take their Social Studies classes to the virtual realm thanks to NIE’s first designed and conceptualised learning tool, the “Statecraft X”. Officially launched to the retail market on January 2012, it features an invitation to become Mayor of a magical village. Expect exhilarating game modes and a host of mythical characters that include elves, fairies, gnomes and many more.
Students, trainee teachers, education leaders and teaching professionals can now experience the future of classroom learning environments at NIE campus’ latest addition, Classroom of the Future (COTF for short). Boasting state-of-the-art devices that not only showcase vibrant visuals but kinetics controls, virtual games that titillate the olfactory senses and even cyber discussions with project mates in any part of the world, COTF will surely ignite new inspiration for smart technologies in classrooms.
NIE made the news as the first institute to offer a fully-functional Centre that offers psychological services, counselling and guidance for students at NIE, NTU and the general public. Aimed at providing a more comprehensive hands-on experience for trainees at NIE’s Master of Arts Counselling and Guidance and the Applied Psychology specialisations, it is also a much welcomed psychological assessment centre that provides affordable help to the general public.
