Our lab is about pupils taking their learning progress into their own hands. We've stepped aside from the classic teaching methods and have started to provide digital content, enforced by the text- and/or workbooks (where as it used to be the other way around).
The pupils are given a bigger area in which they, themselves, organise the furniture, the decorations, the ambiance, to create a custom-built professional atmosphere. Every pupil has his/her own chromebook which they use all day long. On Mondays, they receive their summaries of what is expected of them for the week to come, on Fridays, they have to bring in their work. Weaker pupils get a lot of extra attention, stronger pupils are encouraged to work independently at their own pace.
