What is the Lab-Learning project?

The reason that motivates the Lab-Learning project is the fact that in many member states, many young migrants and youth who need special attention are not doing well in the education system. This poses a great and serious challenge to EU education systems, especially for primary and secondary schools as well as initial vocational training.

Most research as well as everyday evidence confirms the general impression of the existence of a general mismatch between the media culture of young people in the new generations and the classroom didactics, the traditional way of organizing education in EU throughout centuries.

Moreover, much evidence indicates that these groups of young people are, in fact, able to learn, and quite talented. But they learn differently than the standard-students of the traditional education system.

Duration: november 2011 – october 2013
