LSL Open House 2012, November

Thursday, 06 December 2012

LSL organized an Open House on 28 November 2012.  We invited participants of the 20th International Conference on Computers in Education attendees to tour the lab, meet the research teams, try out new activities and software, and engage in conversation about the lab’s research.

During this interactive event, about 80 visitors toured the lab, visited each of the projects display area where their research was explored and discussed.

LSL was established in 2005 with a vision,

“To empower learners, in schools and beyond, through design research centred on meaning–making, enabling tools, and participatory cultures. As the first such lab in Asia, we focus on transforming learning using interdisciplinary approaches that cut across methodologies and scales of educational theory and practice.”

LSL researchers have been awarded 84 research projects, at a total amount of approximately $20m since 2005.  The majority of the projects have been school-based, with most involving design partnerships with teachers and other stakeholders in the schools.  To date, we have worked with 85+ schools, impacting 500+ teachers and 10,000+ students.  Our research projects range among the following five themes: Student Generated Designs, Play/ Game-based Learning, Mobile Learning, Embodied Cognition, and New Media.
