edu.lab at Jakob-Fugger-Gymnasium

Our lab is meant to provide an inspirational learning environment that helps all the members of our school and their partners to experience and work with new technologies. We want to show them examples on how to implement innovative methodologies and technologies into their everyday lessons. Pupils and teachers of Jakob Fugger Grammar School make use of the technology, which is at their disposal during their everyday lessons and projects. In addition to that, teachers and students of the University of Augsburg are using the edu.lab to plan and test new concepts. Moreover, we develop teacher training activities in the frame of "teaching and learning with digital technologies" to keep up with the latest developments in technology and media.

In our innovative learning space, there are different learning zones  based on the ideas of the FCL in Brussels. Furthermore, the room is equipped with furniture in accordance with a new ergonomical concept called "Moving Sitness" and flexible folding tables.

Our edu.lab offers the following technologies:

  • Calliope, Arduino and Raspberry Pi for interactive coding
  • Interactive SMART-Board with a presenting arena for professional presentation and video conferences together with a specific video conference system
  • HP360 convertible tablet computers (education version) for all purposes
  • Touchtables for collaborative learning
  • Workstations for CAD and CFD

  • Dremel 3D-printers
  • High Performance VR-station with an Oculus Rift and a zSpace-3D-monitor
