Future classroom lab fritic, Switzerland
The Future classroom lab fritic in Fribourg, Switzerland is the evolution of the space used from 2011 until 2017 by the Centre fritic (Department of Education, canton Fribourg, Switzerland) as a showroom to advise school leaders and local authorities about interactive solutions and ICT equipment for their classrooms. Inspired by the Future Classroom Lab in Brussels, the room has been transformed into a lab and currently welcomes not only local authorities and school leaders but also teachers and students for CPD and ICT projects. Future classroom lab fritic is organized in six different learning zones, each one serving specific pedagogical purposes:
• Knowledge Building - Between Interactivity and One to One
• ICT for inclusion
• Creativity and expression through multimedia
• Coding and Programming: Developing computational thinking
• Explore, discover, immerse yourself - Learn with virtual reality
