After four years’ duration, the Go-Lab project officially ended in October 2016. But the Go-Lab Initiative is not over! The new project Next-Lab, which started in January 2017, will take the Go-Lab Portal to a next impact and innovation level!
Next-Lab will increase the number of involved teachers and students, expand its target group to include younger students in primary education, and make efforts to align the project with teacher training programmes, thus, targeting also pre-service teachers. This way – via the teachers of the future – Next-Lab consortium will be able to get more young people inspired about science and technology.
The open authoring (Graasp) and sharing (Golabz) platforms will be enhanced with new features required by the teachers as well as by the addition of new tools for the students. For example, collaborative creation of ILSs will be supported, giving teachers the possibility to jointly create cross-curriculum learning scenarios. Furthermore, the students will be able to work collaboratively on their learning and research projects. Finally, learning apps enabling students to acquire 21st century skills as well as a tool to create ePortfolios will be available.
The Next-Lab project is conducted in the context of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme. It has started on the 1st of January 2017 and will last for three years, coordinated by the University of Twente in the Netherlands.
