Next-Lab follows and extends the strategy of Go-Lab on introducing inquiry-based science education in European schools, providing access to online labs worldwide and training teachers in the use of innovative teaching technologies.
The Next-Lab project is addressing both in-service and pre-service teachers, extending the context of use and including new features and facilities that are required by students and teachers, like self- and peer-assessment, the creation of runnable scientific models, as well as a solution to support ePortfolio creation and management by students. In the same manner as Go-Lab, Next-Lab will offer summer (and winter) schools and training workshops for Go-Lab ambassadors. The free Go-Lab online course "Using online labs in the classroom: an introductory course for teachers" will be run as usual several times a year at the OpenCourseWorld platform. Last but not least, Next-Lab will install a permanent helpdesk so that we can even be of better service.
