The Learning and Performance Institute, a global institute for learning and development professionals, has awarded Toolwire and Leeds Metropolitan University a Gold Medal for External Learning Project of the Year at their annual event, The Learning Awards. The award-winning project enables students to gain such Social Work experience through an interactive photorealistic immersive learning environment known as a Toolwire LearnScape.
The Leeds Metropolitan Safeguarding Children LearnScape is an online learning experience that replicates challenging child protection scenarios. Real-life characters guide students through a multi-branching story that delivers learning content, assesses progress, and helps students to revisit topics until they are proficient. This learning tool enables students to practice the behaviourial skills that are hard to teach in a traditional classroom and are typically developed through years of work experience.
The Munro Review of Child Protection (2011) cited that Theory and research are not always well integrated with practice and there is a failure to align what is taught with the realities of contemporary social work practice, commented Sarah Frame, Director of Business Development, EMEA at Toolwire. By combining Toolwire LearnScapes with the high quality content developed by Leeds Metropolitans academic staff, we are able to address this issue to develop social workers who are optimally equipped for work on the front line of child protection. Students are under immense pressure to digest and retain complex information, but the stakes are even higher when graduates are asked to apply that knowledge in sensitive real life situations where childrens lives are at stake.
Professor Sally Glen, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Leeds Metropolitan University, commented, We are pioneering the use of online Experiential Learning to ensure our students have the highest quality learning experience. It is incredibly beneficial to provide a technology-based solution that students can complete in their own time and without the self-consciousness that can sometimes be apparent in classroom-based role-play. In addition, we are responding to national concerns around the adequate preparation of social workers. In line with the Munro Review, we want our graduates to be properly equipped to deliver child protection in a multi-disciplinary setting. The immersive learning enables students to understand and experience how to work as part of an inter-professional team, which includes police, healthcare and probation officers characters. We believe this greater understanding will produce social workers who are able to work more effectively as part of a multi-agency team.
John Valencia, Toolwire President and CEO commented, We are deeply honoured to win this prestigious Learning & Performance Institute award. This new learning tool, which is now available for use by other institutions, exemplifies the power of online Experiential Learning to develop the social worker of tomorrow. Aside from the accolades, it is immensely gratifying to know that our learning solutions are not only helping to strengthen education programmes and enhance student learning, but they also contribute to improving society as a whole by training professionals responsible for protecting the lives of children.

GREENGUARDs Gold certification helps consumers find manufacturers that actually meet the rigorous standards of sustainability and low-toxicity through independent, third-party testing. All certified products must pass stringent chemical emissions requirements, such as a screening of more than 10,000 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can create hazardous indoor pollution.
With over 30 years of experience in the baby and juvenile furniture, Karla Dubois was founded with the guiding principles of Safety, Style and Sustainability. Their intuitively designed furnishings blend together beauty and security with eco-friendly modern living. Today, the company is proud with this safety and GREENGUARD gold certified baby crib certification, which verifies their commitment to safe and ecologically sound products.
Were so excited with this new announcement. It recognizes our genuine commitment for a safer and greener planet paired with great design, said Karla Dubois. We believe the GREENGUARD Gold standards are what parents want because we are parents too.
GREENGUARD Golds scientific method uses dynamic environmental chambers testing as guided by the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) testing protocol for furniture, the state of Washington’s protocol for interior furnishings and construction materials, Germany’s Blue Angel Program, Californias Department of Public Health Services (CDPH) Standard Practice for Specification Section 01350 and the ISO 16000 environmental testing series. Actual product use is reconstructed inside the dynamic environmental chambers, and particle and chemical emissions are measured at specific intervals during strict testing protocols.
Now that Karla Dubois is verified, their GREENGUARD Gold certified modern baby cribs will add points to established eco-friendly baby nursery building programs, satisfy code or ordinance criteria or meet indoor air quality specific RFP requirements.
A true testament to good design, all of Karla Duboiss eco-friendly baby furniture actually grows with your child. Baby cribs easily transform into toddler beds, and dressers are multifunctional, all the while maintaining a beautiful aesthetic style parents and children deserve.
The Safety of children and protecting the environment has always been guiding principles at Karla Dubois. Along with its seal from JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association), its new GREENGUARD Gold Certification is setting a high standard of excellence that parents demand.
Karla Dubois believes that their mission is essential in creating a better world for your children and theirs. The company repeatedly demonstrates the right solution for the modern baby nursery, which expresses individual style without compromising safety and the planet for generations to come.
