Go-Lab Summer School 2020
5-10 July 2020
The Go-Lab Summer School is designed to be highly engaging and interactive experiences for anyone interested to learn about the innovative Go-Lab System!
The courses will show participants how to use the Go-Lab Ecosystem (www.golabz.eu) and how to integrated online labs and apps in Inquiry Learning Spaces that will offer more exciting and interactive science lessons.

Are you a STEM teacher working in secondary or primary education? Are you planning to integrate ICT in your inquiry-based STEM classes? Would you like to learn more about how to use online labs and apps effectively in your science lessons? Are you applying inquiry learning in your school? Or do you wish to learn more about Inquiry-Based Science Education for primary and secondary education? Have you heard about Go-Lab, but haven’t gotten the chance yet to fully get yourself familiar with it?
The Go-Lab Summer School is designed to be highly engaging and interactive experiences for beginners and more experienced Go-Lab users! The courses will show participants all about the Go-Lab Ecosystem (www.golabz.eu) and how to integrated online labs and apps in Inquiry Learning Spaces that will offer more exciting and interactive science lessons. In the Go-Lab Summer School teachers will work in small groups and collaborate with teachers from other all over Europe to discuss ideas and exchange experiences. In the end you will create learning activities which will encompass all the features of successful inquiry-based inter-disciplinary science activities.

The Go-Lab 2020 Summer School is specifically designed for teaching professionals in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) with no or only little prior knowledge of Go-Lab. It will introduce to teachers the use of online labs and experimentations as well as inquiry-based science teaching techniques to develop, improve and enhance their teaching skills and practices.
The overall goal of this school is twofold:
- to familiarize participants with the significance and opportunities of inquiry-based science education through the use of online and remote labs in STEM classrooms;
- to enable teachers to successfully find, work with and apply the innovative, ICT based tools of the Go-Lab Ecosystem that will help them create attractive science lessons and foster the interest of their students in science topics.

The Go-Lab Summer School is a highly engaging and interactive course. Participating teachers will work in small groups and thus be able to collaborate with teachers from other countries, discuss ideas and exchange experiences to create a group activity which will encompass all the features of a successful inquiry-based multidisciplinary science activity.
The course will last for 6 days, consisting in total of at least 25 hours of workshop-based training, such as presentations followed by hands-on sessions (10 hours of lectures and demonstrations, 15 hours of hands-on workshops). Throughout the duration of the course teachers will participate in inquiry activities from two different points of view:
- as learners performing inquiry-based experimentations using on-line labs and supportive applications,
- as teachers implementing inquiry-based scenarios connected to online labs & experiments.Therefore, special sessions are dedicated to showcase and practice how to collaboratively experience and use the innovative tools and Go-Lab Ecosystem, as well as how to design inquiry-based multidisciplinary educational activities using educational material from digital repositories and collections of on-line labs. Participants will learn how to set up and work in learning spaces that can be personalized, how to navigate through digital resources and on-line labs, and how to browse through existing educational scenarios and work on them.
Go-Lab Summer School participants are asked to browse and familiarize themselves with the Go-Lab Ecosystem (especially www.golabz.eu and www.graasp.eu). To ensure the proper preparation for the training course a common space in Graasp will be created to act as a main hub of communication and for sharing and distributing preparatory material with the participants.
Through this space the participants will have access to all materials necessary for their preparation (suggested reading, relevant websites, guidelines etc.) and a common workspace for uploading and downloading educational materials and the workshop presentations. Moreover, all the information regarding the training course such as the course description, the daily programme, travelling and accommodation guidelines will also be accessible through the website.
At the end of the course, following the presentation of their work on the last day of the course, participants will receive a training certificate that confirms the successful completion of the course and its objectives.
As members of the Go-Lab community of science teachers, Summer Schools participants will have access to support provided by the Go-Lab team, and they will be able to communicate with other science teachers in European countries, who have a common interest, share their ideas and experience and collaborate in joint activities. Furthermore, all participants will be asked to make use of the activities they worked on during the summer school and share their work via the Graasp space and the Go-Lab community of science teachers.
