PHOTOS: A Look At Brampton's Proposed Learning Technology Centre
The city just proposed a learning technology centre in partnership with the Peel District School Board.
In November 2017, the City of Brampton's Recreation Division and Peel District School Board began exploring ways to renovate the Central Peel Secondary School, which is located on 32 Kennedy Road North.
The school has a 7,000 square foot satellite building that has not held classes in a number of years. The satellite building is a one-storey building with a basement that has recently undergone upgrades to the exterior of the building to make it watertight. The building is adjacent to but separate from, Central Peel Secondary School.
The Collaborative Learning Technology Centre will be a shared space where students and youth from across Brampton can come to collaborate and learn. The city will create creative and functional spaces with innovative technological equipment, which can be used in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related programming.
There will be five classrooms with a capacity of 30 people each. The rooms will be furnished with versatile furniture. There will also be two open collaboration spaces that can be used for large groups, programming or as a space for parents while their children attend programs.
The space will also hold registered STEM-related programs during the school year. Over the March Break and summer months, the city will offer camps to local students and youth. They will also expand their current program options to include STEM-related adult learning and family programming.
The proposed Collaborative Learning Technology Centre will support Brampton's 2040 Vision, and the Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The city aims to partner with publicly funded agencies and leverage the strengths of local system partners with the creation of this new learning technology centre.
