EduFor Innov@tive Classroom Lab (EduFor ICL@b) is an Edufor Training Centre Project, inspired in "Future Classroom Lab", designed by European Schoolnet, placed in Brussels. The learning space was inaugurated on 10th May 2016 and it offers two classrooms containing six learning areas, with easy access to a large auditorium which may hold major learning activities and seminars. The lab is used for teachers (trainings are organised for national and international teachers) and pupils as well, on a classroom basis (regular syllabus and special needs). For all the activities in this space, the pedagogical approach always respects the development of 21st Century Skills. Besides its use for students and teacher training, this space is visited by many external entities, coming to EduFor ICL@b to be inspired.
Available equipment: LEGO robots, a NAO humanoid robot, interactive panels and smartphones.
All furniture is from Steelcase.
EduFor Innov@tive Classroom Lab receives financial support from various stakeholders, the Municipality of Mangualde, EduFor Training Centre and local companies. The Ministry of Education is also a partner. EduFor ICL@B was opened in 2016 with the material support from 40 stakeholders. See the list.
