The purpose of the Co4-Lab project is to research and develop knowledge-creating practices of learning based on co-inquiry, co-design, co-teaching, and co-regulation.
Laboratory of Co-inquiry, Co-design, Co-teaching and Co-regulation
The projects aims at improving quality of science, technology, and craft education at primary and lower secondary schools by organizing series of design experiments for cultivating technology-mediated practices of collaborative invention and discovery.
School projects are focused on exploring challenging real-world phenomena, integrating knowledge and competence across subject domains, and designing and inventing, testing and constructing various artefacts and products, and building knowledge of the process.
Co4-Lab integrates researchers-’and schools’ (teachers and students) efforts for cultivating learning practices that elicit 21st century skills and provide challenges inspiring both male and female and younger and older students.
The project produces guidelines, models, and resources regarding knowledge-creating learning for supporting teachers and schools in nurturing practices of invention pedagogy.
