EDULAB CR organizes seminars, workshops, sample lessons and conferences for teachers, students and future teachers in regions all over the Czech Republic. It shows them how to use modern technology (tablets and other devices) and digital educational content in lessons and how to choose adequate applications for each subject. The lab is being funded mainly by its partners and most of the courses and activities are free of charge.
In the learning space there are Samsung LFD ED65D with Samsung touch overlay, computer, tablets (Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition Wi-Fi P6000 white), Samsung School software and Wi-Fi infrastructure, notebooks, webcam and digital camera. The lab uses also digital gadgets for early childhood education (for example Bee-Bot and digital microscope).
In cooperation with its commercial partners EDULAB CR runs School at a Touch project. In this project twelve schools from the Czech Republic are enrolled into the experimental project of teaching with tablets and touchscreen boards. Over 1 000 pupils and 100 teachers are involved in the project. Those schools were in September 2014 equipped with Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition tablets, Samsung LFD ED65D, Samsung School software and Wi-Fi infrastructure and PC with 24 inch monitor.
