Abstract

The Go-Lab project (http://www.go-lab-project.eu/) aims to enable the integration of online labs through inquiry-based learning approaches into science classrooms. Through the use of an advanced plug and play technological solution the Go-Lab project opens up remote science laboratories, data archives, and virtual labs (together “online labs”) for large-scale use in real educational settings. Currently, the Go-Lab federation of online labs (www.golabz.eu) houses more than 50 labs from a variety of science fields. This number will grow rapidly in the near future. In this ICT demonstration we will show how the federation of online labs is organized, how with the Go-Lab authoring tools researchers, designers and educators/teachers can through a process of drag and drop and assembly easily create full inquiry learning environments that include specific Go-Lab scaffolds for each phase of the inquiry cycle, and the tools we developed to create a Go-Lab teacher community. Go-Lab is completely web-based and if internet connections at the spot allow there will be hands-on experience for the participants of the workshop.
