GoLab - Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School
The course is organized in the context of the project "Go-Lab: Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School". Its main objective is to introduce to teachers the use of online virtual experiments and remote laboratories as well as inquiry-based science teaching techniques in order to help them develop, improve and enhance their teaching skills and practices. These tools and techniques will facilitate them in engaging their students into science topics, in order to acquire scientific inquiry skills and experience the culture of doing science, under motivating circumstances, by undertaking active, guided, experimentation, carried out in renown scientific facilities and research centers. The course will include presentations followed by practical sessions and workshops focusing on:
Concepts and skills of learning-design, inquiry processes and multidisciplinary teaching
Preparing, uploading and sharing digital learning resources and activities
Inquiry-based learning activities for use in the science classroom
Familiarization with on-line labs portals and educational digital repositories
Presentation of popular social tools and science outreach websites
Hands-on sessions working on on-line labs and resources related to science.
The repertoire of online labs, experiments and best practices, and the educational tools that will be presented in combination with the hands-on activities will facilitate the participants in learning how to deploy and integrate them in their school environment and everyday science teaching practice and also how to contribute their own work into educational repositories and share it within a European community of practice.
