School Laboratory Anticipating Future Needs of European Youth

The work presented in this paper is based on the development of the LAB@FUTURE Learning Platform. LAB@FUTURE’s theoretical base convolves social constructivism with expansive learning, a special focus of activity theory. Within a mixed and augmented realities set-up, enabling mobile eLearning, experiments that will involve laboratory teaching for the disciplines of Science, Mathematics, and Arts & Humanities, will be conducted. LAB@FUTURE uses both real and virtualised objects for educational purposes. Virtualized objects are interfaced to the user, using mechatronic systems, mobile technologies and 3D multi user environments. In addition, there will be real objects that the teacher or student will be able to interact with, using special interface devices, in order to specify or carry out an experiment.
