Is a frictionless adaptive learning platform that empowers teachers, children and students to build, program and use simple robots, plant caring robots, aeroponic towers, robotic greenhouses, cleantech devices, cybersecurity environments, 3D printers, VR devices and other complex tech systems. It is designed to be used by schools, public libraries, universities and companies in need of IT talent. Nextlab.tech supports both formal and informal educational activities aimed at training children and students(8-23 years old) for the jobs of the future provided by technology companies.
Using nextlab.tech is a "plug-and-play" educational experience. It could be described as a system for making tech education accessible on a large scale to normal teachers and students without prior tech education. You are not expected to create content when using Nextlab.tech although you may choose to do so by using open educational resources (OERs).
Nextlab.tech uses the power of artificial intelligence to enable normal teachers and professors to deliver lessons in robotics, computer programming and other advanced subjects such as cybersecurity, 3D printing, machine learning, virtual reality and urban agriculture. It greatly reduces the teaching load and bridges the digital divide between regions.
Apart from offering an adaptive learning platform, Nextlab.tech also comes with content and is integrated with real educational devices based on affordable semiconductors. It is an end-to-end solution for those who want to modernize schools, public libraries and training departments. Nextlab.tech includes both software, content, and compatible hardware.
Is to put educational semiconductors in the hands of each student and to empower educators to orchestrate captivitating educational activities such as robohackathons. Nextlab.tech also offers a framework to certify tech competencies acquired on various platforms. Nextlab.tech is neither an LMS nor an authoring tool and may be used in parallel with almost any LMS and/or authoring tool.
Nextlab.tech is currently being implemented in 5400 schools and a few companies from Romania and is estimated to reach 800 000 users by the end of 2023. The platform will be available in English as of Q3 2023.
