Ikasgelatik laborategira (2017) = Del aula al laboratorio (2017) = From the classroom to the laboratory (2017)
In schools we called the laboratory the space and/or cross-cutting activities used so that pupils, based on an experimental application, can assimilate the knowledge, skills or capacities they are required to learn. This cross-cutting nature of the laboratory space and activities makes it possible to learn and create in a more open, dynamic, critical, practical and collaborative way. We see the laboratory as a space to innovate in education, where pupils acquire other skills related to creativity, group work or autonomy and initiative. Ikasgelatik laborategira (From the classroom to the laboratory) was an activity aimed at education professionals which seeks to answer various questions and propose new ones. What obstacles do we find when creating open laboratories? And how do we overcome them? How to adapt the methodologies, the education material, etc, to new technologies? What are spaces for creativity like? In addition, Ikasgelatik laborategietara seeked to make visible the work that many teachers carry out in this respect in their day-to-day activity, and who have been the inspiration and the driving force to activate this line of work at Hirikilabs. Thus, during the event there was a presentation of a document of Good Practices for the Creation of Open Laboratories, the result of a process of one and a half years carried out at Hirikilabs by an open group of education professionals and drafted by Susanna Tesconi. The event aimed to promote the network of teachers and professionals who were already working on transforming education and to make known the work of several agents that we could use as inspiration when setting up laboratories in schools.
