China’s IBOBI: World’s First High-Tech Early Education Center
SHENZHEN, China, Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The Star Trek classroom is no longer a dream. Not long after U.K.-based Durham University launched its ‘classroom of the future’ touch screen teaching system – a novel system that enhanced the interaction and collaboration between students and their educators, China’s IBOBI has successfully developed a teaching system based on immersion interactive technology and launched it into the market.
With eight years of research and development and enormous efforts of many international educational experts, the IBOBI system enables children from newborns up to six-years of age to interactively absorb knowledge through virtual scenery and a somato-sensory interactive process.
The novel method that combines interactive experience with traditional classroom teaching was welcomed by the new generation of Chinese families. Researchers have found that the interactive immersion teaching method promotes the engagement and participation of parents and other family members in the child’s education process while allowing all participants to fully enjoy the rich classroom experience to a great extent.
According to IBOBI, the trend in education is not only about the interaction between teachers and students, but also enabling the interaction between students and the content to be absorbed between students and their parents, as well as between families and society in general. IBOBI CTO Yuxi Zhong, a graduate of University of East Anglia, U.K. with a specialty in virtual reality, said, “IBOBI’s immersion interactive teaching system helps babies participate in the knowledge acquisition experience and let parents, via the novel learning method, create course materials so that parents and children will be growing together.”
Australian early childhood education expert Dr. Julia Dumn also noted that the immersion interactive teaching method not only stimulates babies’ creativity but also enriches their imagination thought processes and emotional experiences, significantly promoting their cognition as well as language and artistic skills during the earliest stages of childhood.
The development of China’s early education is now in full gear. As a result of the growth of China’s economy and the social ramifications of the country’s one child policy, the new generation of Chinese families are paying special attention to fostering creativity as an essential part of their children’s education process, especially in the early stages of their development. With the help of new technological development, the country’s early childhood education industry is adding a whole array of multimedia interactive teaching tools to the entire teaching system to ensure the country’s young flowers are blooming to their full potential.
