Brooke Weston Academy

Brooke Weston Academy is an Academy in Corby, United Kingdom, teaching pupils from ages 11 to 18. It has placed highly in GCSE league tables and has an above average value added score at Key Stage 4; the value added score for Key Stage 5 is below average nationally, but higher than the Northamptonshire average. Attainment on entry is well above average and the proportions of pupils with learning difficulties and disabilities or eligible for free school meals are much lower than average. Founded in 1991, the school was opened as a City Technology College; the college's catchment area includes Corby and surrounding towns and villages. Two businessmen, Hugh de Capell Brooke, a local landowner, Garry Weston, owner of Associated British Foods, donated land and funded the initial building of the school along with additional grants from the Weston Foundation; the school opened in September 1991 under the name Brooke City Technology College. The name was changed 18 months to reflect the continued support offered from the Weston Foundation.

Gareth Newman CBE: 1991 - 1999. Was awarded a CBE in 1997 in recognition of his services to education; the library at Brooke Weston is named after him in his honour. Sir Peter Simpson OBE: 1999 - 2007. Was awarded an OBE in recognition of his services to the school, he was knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours 2011. Trish Stringer: 2007–2015 Sam Strickland: 2015 - 2016 Peter Kirkbride: 2016–present The school makes use of electronic whiteboards in all classrooms, learning bases and study rooms; every pupil and member of staff have their own user accounts and storage areas. The school houses a local area network, allowing pupils to access their work from any computer, abiding to a usage policy. All devices connected to the network have internet filtering; the school was one of the first to take on board the GNVQ IT, in place of the GCSE. The transitional year of 1998 saw other subject classes cancelled for entire week blocks to bring the pupils into the new qualification having studied the GCSE.

In addition many Design & Technology classes were cancelled to be replaced with IT classes. The school produced and sells an ‘online curriculum’; this consists of a range of interactive learning materials and online tasks which all relate to various subject areas. The school's subsidiary company, @tain, sells access to the content to other schools. In addition, the school provided training days which allowed teaching staff from other schools to attend seminars at the school and learn the methods in which the school taught the courses provided on its online curriculum and how to maximise the effectiveness of using it in a classroom environment. With the redevelopment of the vocational courses in 2010, Brooke Weston decided to not produce materials for the new specifications; each year, the school holds its annual sports day at Corby Triangle near Rockingham where it displays all popular track and field disciplines. Sports Day includes the final of the inter-tutor Tug of War competition. Sports Day is popular for pupils, each tutor group in a year competes against each other to gain the most points and win the trophy.

Tutor groups participate in inter-tutor football and rounders/netball each year. Brooke Weston holds an annual prizegiving in September of each year, celebrating the achievements of the pupils for the previous academic year. Prizes are awarded in each year for individual subjects, pupil of the year, recognition for academic success in GCSE and A Level; the school has a Design Technology suite, with CAD/CAM facilities and a laser cutter. The CAD/CAM suite includes an A3 colour laser printer; the department includes two workshops including CNC lathes, wood-turning lathes, metal working lathes, scroll saws and pillar drills, jig-saws and clamps. The department features facilities for textiles and sewing as well as an area for pupils to review and edit design plans digitally using a range of programmes, it was refurbished in 2008 at a cost of £250,000. The school has its own video editing studio with chroma-key facility. In September 2008, Brooke Weston converted to an Academy. £5 million of Government money has been invested in the school, which has resulted in the construction of a new Creative and Digital Arts Centre.

Opened by Trustee Hugh de Capell Brooke on 9 October 2009, this has expanded the school's music and drama performing facilities alongside a new TV studio and kitchens, which will allow Food Technology to be taught. The entire school building underwent a significant refurbishment to coincide with the opening of the new department. In January 2013, Brooke Weston issued an apology after an email criticising a pyjama day was accidentally sent from vice principal, Mark Willimott, to children's cancer charity'Chelsea's Angels', who suggested the event. Willimott had intended to forward the email with his comments to a colleague, but inadvertently addressed it to charity founder Michelle Tompkins too, writing:"AM I MISSING SOMETHING??? FYI although are they aiming for a paedophile's paradise????" Principal Trish Stringer apologised, describing the incident as regrettable and clarifying that Brooke Weston does not support pyjama days as they do not believe it is appropriate for children to come to school in night attire.

In August 2015, Willimott was arrested for distributing indecent images of children. He pleaded guilty to all four charges facing him, including one count of making 30,546 indecent images of children, one count of making 773 indecent images of children, one count of distributing 128 indecent images, one count of possess

Virtual intelligence

Virtual intelligence is the term given to artificial intelligence that exists within a virtual world. Many virtual worlds have options for persistent avatars that provide information, role playing, social interactions; the immersion of virtual worlds provides a unique platform for VI beyond the traditional paradigm of past user interfaces. What Alan Turing established as the benchmark for telling the difference between human and computerized intelligence was done void of visual influences. With today's VI bots, virtual intelligence has evolved past the constraints of past testing into a new level of the machine's ability to demonstrate intelligence; the immersive features of these environments provide non verbal elements that affect the realism provided by intelligent agents. Virtual intelligence is the intersection of these two technologies: Virtual environments: Immersive 3D spaces provide for collaboration and role playing interactions for training. Many of these virtual environments are being used for government and academic projects, including Second Life, VastPark, OpenSim, Oracle's Open Wonderland, Duke University's Open Cobalt, many others.

Some of the commercial virtual worlds are taking this technology into new directions, including the high definition virtual world Blue Mars. Artificial intelligenceThe virtual environments provide non-verbals and visual cues that can affect not only the believability of the VI, but the usefulness of it; because – like many things in technology – it's not just about "whether or not it works" but about "how we feel about it working". Virtual Intelligence draws a new distinction as to how this application of AI is different due to the environment in which it operates. Cutlass Bomb Disposal Robot: Northrop Grumman developed a virtual training opportunity because of the prohibitive real world cost and dangers associated with bomb disposal. By replicating a complicated system without having to learn advanced code, the virtual robot has no risk of damage, trainee safety hazards, or accessibility constraints. MyCyber Twin: NASA is among the companies that have used the MyCyber Twin AI technologies, they used it for the Phoenix rover in the virtual world Second Life.

Their MyCyber Twin used a programmed profile to relay information about the Phoenix rover to inform people on what it was doing and its purpose. Second China: The University of Florida developed the "Second China" project as an immersive training experience for learning how to interact with culture and language in a foreign country. Students are immersed in an environment that provides roleplaying challenges coupled with language and cultural sensitivities magnified during country-level diplomatic missions or during times of potential conflict or regional destabilization; the virtual training provides participants with opportunities to access information, take part in guided learning scenarios, communicate and role-play. While China was the country for the prototype, this model can be modified for use with any culture to help better understand social and cultural interactions and see how other people think and what their actions imply. Duke School of Nursing Training Simulation: Extreme Reality developed virtual training to test critical thinking with a nurse performing trained procedures to identify critical data to make decisions and performing the correct steps for intervention.

Bots are programmed to response to the nurses actions as the patient with their conditions improving if the nurse performs the correct actions.
