How Partner Schools can get Involved:

  • Teachers and students as multipliers of modeling techniques as a teaching and learning tool as well as basic digital literacy.
  • Opportunity for teacher education students to observe a classroom or student teach outside of regular school activities
  • Research projects involving both teachers and students
  • Action research conducted by teachers
  • Joint (academic/scientific) contributions for conferences and/or journals
  • School as a field of research, i.e. for students as part of an undergraduate or graduate project, create and conduct surveys, etc.
  • Teachers and students can take part developing classroom materials, learning videos or other projects involving the COOL Lab
  • School(developments), Matura and teaching projects on topics relevant to the COOL Lab

Many aspects can be integrated into regular lessons or introduced in the form of project days and project weeks, theme days, non-binding exercises, and other school events.
