The Sensory Studio at Threeways

At Threeways school, dotLib are responsible for the running of the Sensory Studio. This is an incredibly versatile space that can be adapted to any area of the curriculum and provides a platform for immersive environments, informational scenarios, interactivity, multi-sensory stimuli, extra curricular clubs and special events. The space makes use of three projectors to impose one super wide image, we have a large bespoke lighting system, a 12 speaker surround sound system, a range of sensors and haptic devices and a variety of alternative control interfaces for use by students and staff. With the school engaging dotLib as an 'Interaction Designer/Programmer' we are able to develop content and use sensors, cameras, microphones, tag readers and the iPad to trigger various lighting, video and sound events. In this way, students of any ability can gain control over their environment and teachers can wirelessly control a particular scenario. Sessions make use of auditory, tactile, visual, taste and smell stimuli with integrated music therapy and aim to provide pupils with the opportunity to learn whilst working, exploring and experiencing independently.

dotLib also enable the creative use of technology throughout the school and run STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) related workshops with electronics and coding sessions.
