Technology in the Environment

The Earl Center was built with the purpose of being a tech-enabled environment.  Below is a list of technology built into the environment of the Earl Center.  Visit the Earl Center Spaces page to learn more about the Earl Center environment.

Interactive Touch Screen

Powered by Windows Surface, it is used for experimenting with touch technology and to think creatively about the use of apps and other touch based programs in educational settings.  The Earl Center plans to enhance the app offerings on the screen and encourages the Wheelock community and visitors to suggest apps.
