From the April 14 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education comes an inspiring article and video on Temple’s new TECH Center. TECH stands for Teaching, Education, Collaboration, and Help Center, a pretty good combination of ideas, and the Center itself is a multimillion dollar building where students have access to computers, software for photo and video editing, study and collaboration areas, and a help center, of course.
Instead of becoming a laptop school, the popular trend, Temple chose to centralize technology and take advantage of a space where students can collaborate as well as focus, because it is a learning space. Surprisingly, even students with laptops come to the TECH Center to work because of the environment.
