Laboratório da Era Digital (LED) - Digital Era Lab (DEL)
This project aims to promote active learning methodologies in order to change the paradigm of the traditional classroom, centred on the teacher, to a constructed learning environment, where the focus is on the student, his motivations, relationships, characteristics and interests.
This is a project directly linked to our school educational project and based on 4 pillars:
- The Sustainable Development Goals;
- The essential learning of STEAM;
- The 21st-century skills for lifelong learning;
- The 6 dimensions for whole child development.
To do this, it will be fundamental to build a flexible and very adaptable environment, with the participation of the entire educational community. Teachers will plan and create the Digital Era Kits (DEKs) during the teacher trainings in partnership with the regional teachers training centre, "Novafoco". The project motto is: "DEK by DEK I get to the DEL!", viewing the DEKs as extensions of the DEL and as pedagogical resources to be used in the classrooms. Teachers will benefit from training activities and workshops on the innovative methodologies, and they will be able to put them in practice at the DEL or in their classrooms through the DEKs.
This Lab is a privileged learning space for students and a training space for teachers. The KEDs are fundamental resources for the implementation of these methodologies, which aim to promote students' happiness and success in school and in their future lives. This project should be a foundation for everyone to learn and continue to learn throughout their lives while defending equal opportunities. Teachers must use active learning methodologies and structure the learning of all students so as to prepare them to overcome the challenges they will be confronted with.
