First Mobile Digital Classroom to be unveiled

Samsung's Mobile Digital Classroom concept to be showcased at V&A Digital Design Weekend

Posted by Hannah Oakman | September 30, 2016 | Events

Samsung Electronics has announced that its Mobile Digital Classroom will be showcased at the V&A Digital Design Weekend on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September. The weekend will bring together artists, designers, engineers, technologists and the public to celebrate and share the latest contemporary digital art and design. This year’s event will explore engineering, civic design and collaborative making as part of the V&A’s Engineering Season. 

The Samsung Mobile Digital Classroom, which is aimed at 16-19 year olds, hosts monthly workshops to encourage young people to explore emerging digital creative practices, in subjects including virtual reality, projection mapping and game design.

A classroom without walls, the Samsung Mobile Digital Classroom is specially commissioned for immersive teaching, learning and inspiration, designed by design consultancy Dubloon. The resulting structure is comprised of tubes of light, which create a visually unobtrusive space, enabling the public to see the workshop unfolding in front of them. Large entry and exit points are also designed to encourage a more dynamic style of learning. There are additional pieces of mobile furniture which facilitate the running of the workshops, including glass table tops, which can be drawn on with marker pens to aid the development of the pupils’ ideas in a free flowing, fun way, complementing the digital technology on offer in the classroom.

The Digital Classroom will host artist Veronica Ranner this weekend, as she speculates on the bio-digital enabling material silk and body interfaces.
