Developed by: Pia Capisano and Laura Malinverni.

Aimed at: students and teachers of primary and secondary education centers in the Principality of Asturias.


True learning comes through discovery and experimentation: an individual or shared process in which a tool or knowledge must make sense to the learner. According to Paulo Freire’s critical pedagogy proposal: “it is necessary to challenge the paradigm of domination, dismantling the beliefs and practices that articulate it.”

At TVLAB, a free and collaborative work space is built, where there is time for students to experiment and discover the tools and decide what they want to tell. Previously, it is necessary to generate a climate of trust and freedom through dynamics of debate, research and decision-making. Ultimately, students are “empowered” by their learning process and the tools at their disposal.

The experience requires from the teaching staff an attitude of respect and support throughout the entire process, reflecting in its programming the incorporation of knowledge and skills that the students make their own the moment they feel ready. This entails active reflection on educational practice throughout the entire process.


‐ Promote self-esteem and personal initiative: imagine projects, develop new ideas, look for solutions and put them into practice. ‐ Develop the ability to learn: curiosity to ask questions, identify resources and search for methodologies and strategies: “become owners of their own learning “.- Promote experimentation, a critical attitude and creative thinking, through knowledge of techniques and tools. – Develop visual thinking in a divergent and creative way through experimentation. – Establish the importance of a deeper knowledge of the technological language: “thinking about technology.” – Promote creativity in communication, the discursive appropriation of reality from one’s own and not imposed perspective. – Work on the creation of methodological tools in collaboration with students, developing self-learning. .
