The Ashdale-ECU Professional Learning Centre at the Darch school features two classrooms with video cameras and four microphones.

An observation room behind a one-way glass wall displays the vision on screens and records to hard disk, allowing student teachers and their tutors to analyse the lesson there and then, or at a later date.

Education Minister Peter Collier officially opened the centre last Friday.
