AuLAB 2015-16

2nd september 2015 – 13th may 2016

AuLAB is a methodological innovation experience based on project work and competency-based programming that is developed in three lines of work: digital design and manufacturing, experimental television and creative programming.

Its fundamental objective is to provide a more creative vision of technology, while proposing a work methodology that promotes a learning space based on experimentation in students and teachers who develop an annual project that is part of the classroom programming.

Work nodes

  1. NodeLearn through digital design and manufacturing(Susanna Tesconi). Digital manufacturing or computer-aided manufacturing allows a design from a computer file to be materialized into a physical object. Using fabLAB resources, students participate in a design process of a real artifact.
  2. NodeTV-LAB. Experimental television laboratory(Pia Capisano and Laura Malinverni). Communication platform and experimental television set that proposes other ways of watching and making television and using communication technologies.
  3. NodeIntroduction to programming(Luis Díaz). Learning basic concepts and processes of how digital technology works and practical exercise in its creative use.

Development of the program

The work methodology is presented in the teacher training sessions held in September 2014. Teachers and students develop an annual project combining work in the classroom with 5 double sessions throughout the school year at LABoral.

The documentation and memory of the development of the project, in addition to the experience of the teachers and students, is collected here:


The “learning by doing” methodology provides participants with research tools to build their own learning through the exchange of experiences and communication between individuals. This means a change in the students, who become responsible for their own learning process and in the teacher, who must accompany this project at all times; at the same time it reflects the contents and curricular competencies worked on in its classroom program and documents the evolution and results for a subsequent evaluation of the experience.
