We design and develop Immersive Classrooms
Interactive Immersive Classroom (IIC) is a company born out of innovation and collaboration.
The company is based at Production Park in Wakefield, England.
Production Park is the home of the live events industry in the UK and the place where many of the greatest shows and spectaculars have been created over the past three decades.
IIC is a spin-out company of Backstage Academy, the training arm of Production Park.
By using technology developed in the ‘Live Visuals’ area of the Academy, it became apparent that opportunities existed in the education sector for the transference of important knowledge and skills.
A meeting between the founder of the academy and the commercial director of the Enquire Learning Trust, led to the start of a collaboration which we now know as IIC.
The Enquire Learning Trust are a multi-academy trust with a number of primary schools around the north of England and it is in this sector that IIC have concentrated their efforts so far.
In so doing, IIC have developed what many industry professionals believe is the most exciting advancement in recent years in the way in which education and learning is delivered.
Of the IIC’s already delivered, several are retro-fitted in existing classrooms. Whilst this is a great solution, not all schools have spare classrooms available. Where suitable rooms are available, we will work with you to design your bespoke immersive space.
For schools that don’t have a suitable internal space, IIC have designed and built the all new Qube360°, which is a full size, purpose built, projection mapped modular classroom.
Planning permission is not normally required for the Qube360°, just a certificate of lawfulness. Building control approval is also generic, so the red tape associated with acquiring and installing Qube360° is kept to a minimum.
User Friendly Technology
Using the IIC or Qube360° is simplicity itself
We provide custom-built media servers that control all of the content of your immersive classroom. Controlling the powerful content is via IMI (Interactive Media Interface) which is a custom-built app which has been developed to work seamlessly with our immersive space.
As well as being a custom-built app on your iPad, IMI is also a playful interactive teaching assistant who will help you teach your lessons and engage your pupils in the exciting world of the immersive classroom.
