Science projects workshop in the Future Classroom Lab (SPW@FCL)

The Future Classroom Lab (FCL) , an independent project of European Schoolnet (EUN) and based at the office of EUN in Brussels, Belgium, provides a platform where policy-makers can rethink their ICT strategies and where teachers, head teachers and ICT advisers can experiment with innovative pedagogical approaches within flexible learning environments. It provides both a large reconfigurable space equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a room designed as an interactive classroom to illustrate how a traditional classroom setting can use technology to enhance interactivity and student participation.

Science events in the FCL are organised under the umbrella name of “Science Projects Workshop in the Future Classroom Lab”. This term was penned during the first phase of the Scientix project, after the first Science Projects Workshop in the FCL was organised by Scientix. These events aim at both training teachers in the use of technologies in the classroom in association with materials and pedagogies from projects and encourage science projects to work together instead of in isolation (both important objectives of Scientix).

For teachers: Scientix covers flights to/from Brussels and hotel nights on Friday and Saturday for 20 teachers and meals from Friday night to Sunday lunch for all. Travel to/from airport as well as travel insurance are at own expense.

For projects: Public funded projects (whether still running or already finished), included in the Scientix portal, are invited to request slots in the programme to carry out a workshop in the Future Classroom Lab.

Both teachers and representatives of projects in STEM education are invited to apply for upcoming events.
