The Go-Lab Project (Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School) opens up online science laboratories (remote and virtual labs) for the large-scale use in school education. The overall aim of the project is to encourage young people aged from 10 to 18 to engage in science topics, acquire scientific inquiry skills, and experience the culture of doing science by undertaking active guided experimentation.
To achieve this aim, the Go-Lab project creates the Go-Lab Portal allowing science teachers finding online labs and inquiry learning applications appropriate for their class, combining these in Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs) supporting particular lesson scenarios, and sharing the ILSs with their students. Using the ILSs, the students receive the opportunity to perform personalized scientific experiments with online labs in a structured learning environment.
The Go-Lab Badges were created to recognize the teacher’s involvement and support for the project. And to acknowledge the merit of those that made the project a success. Thank you!
Note 1: These Go-Lab badges are earned automatically thru the user’s interaction with Go-Lab/Graasp websites. The Ambassador Badge can’t be evaluated like that. So if you have trained others in the use of Go-Lab and feel that you have earned the Ambassador Badge, please get in touch with us at info [at] galileoteachers [dot] org
Note 2: These badges are Mozilla OpenBadges compatible, and as such can be used in any Badge system that recognizes the standard. These badges are issue through out-of-the-box integration of the “Open Credit” API by Credly, so if you have a Credly account under the same e-mail that you use in Go-Lab, your badges will appear there automatically.
