To address the new challenges we face, in a rapidly changing world, we need creativity, engagement, critical thinking, reflection, collaboration, and a global mindset for the citizens of the future. We must advance and promote deeper learning. LearnLab is designed specifically for this purpose, using sound pedagogical research and theory.
LearnLab consists of a unique collection of learning tools designed to be engaging, fun, collaborative and interactive, while also giving educators unique insight into new types of assessment. Participants visualize, cooperate, communicate, go deeper, and explore, themes and concepts, in a fresh and engaging way during every LearnLab session.
Learners should be producers, not consumers. Learning is not a passive task. As education change, from the traditional role of providing information, into the role of facilitating and guiding learners, so must the tools and methods used in the learning process. LearnLab is designed with this in mind. Participants produce their own content and are active in their own learning. Each LearnLab session can be created, using various interactive tasks, to fit specific concepts and goals. Participants can interact verbally and by using mobile devices, tablets and computers.
Great learning happens in groups! That’s why collaboration is one of LearnLab’s central focuses. Much of LearnLab’s functionality is designed for cooperative learning, problem solving and divergent thinking. Groups can work and create together, strengthening social and collaborative skills.
At LearnLab, we look at knowledge on a broad spectrum. Social competence, problem solving, academic understanding and key concepts promote deep learning. LabStat™ is a tool for formative assessment. LabStat™ analyses, and documents deep learning skills to provide insight into engagement and quality of production on the class and individual level.
