The San Francisco 49ers are continuing to further their commitment to education with the launch of a new expansion to their award winning Learning Lab. The expanded space features a 4K interactive wall, 33 tablets, 2 wall monitors, and a projection. Teachers control the class space through their own tablet interface, customizing each lesson with a set of tools and apps.
Though the the 49ers brand identity and football-centric themes run throughout the lesson plans, the Learning Lab seeks to give students a rich education with activities that explore physics, technology, engineering, environmental sustainability, literacy, math, and more. Progress is tracked dynamically, showing class objectives and motivational messages from 49ers players.
The new and improved Learning Lab held its first classes on November 6th, 2015.
