The 3C-FCL (the Knowledge Center-FCL) is a teaching space in the Lycée de la Venise Verte in Niort, Nouvelle Aquitaine which was rebuilt from scratch in 2018. It is divided into different rooms:
- The ground floor is a space dedicated to the school library which was redesigned to give some space, to be modular. This modularity makes reading, group work and interaction possible.
>> 3 little glass-paneled rooms make it easy for small groups (up to 4 or 6) to do some team work or to create projects.
>> 2 rooms which contain mobile and flexible furniture. One has a capacity of 35 people and the other of 20.These two rooms are fully equipped with hybrid and tactile PCs, huge interactive boards that can be adjusted in terms of height and connected to the web, to the school network and to the side screens.
The furniture of these two rooms is completely flexible to meet the teaching demands and make active teaching and learning easier. One of these two rooms has a balcony which is becoming green with plants, grass etc. Thus, some students can choose to work outside when the weather is fine. There, they can use whiteboards which are on the walls.
The other room is fully equipped with some video conference equipment which makes webinars, online courses or even video conference between colleagues possible (colleagues abroad, Erasmus projects…).
>> 1 room where our Fablab is slowly becoming reality: it contains some audio-visual equipment (a green screen, spotlights, video a editing software, a 4K video camera), a large tactile monitor that can be horizontal or vertical or at different angles. There are also a desktop cutting machine and a 3D printer.
These different rooms are open to all the students during their courses but they are also meant to welcome different continuous trainings both as an internal purpose or for external needs. Students and teachers from other schools, seminar participants are also welcomed here to work on various issues such as active teaching. The main goal is to develop the XXI century skills of students and teachers by using a redesigned, flexible and digital environment to make active teaching and learning easier to implement.
