Active learning pedagogies expand at all learning levels. Learners take part in the learning process, by being involved in projects or problems to solve, working in autonomy as well as collaboratively. The teachers support the students’ progress while letting them unfold their own resolution process. Active learning has proven to increase learners’ performance although it implies new complex tasks for both students and teachers. This can be even more difficult for the teacher when facing heterogeneous learning levels.
LabBook provides web-based notebooks that can be used anywhere with an internet access, outside or inside the classroom. A notebook is a workspace designed by the teachers for a specific project, with documents, data and guidelines. The students work in small groups, in their own workspace to produce collaboratively documents according to the project guidelines. They benefit from guidance and feedback from their teacher, online and/or face-to-face. LabBook provides a toolkit for collaborative work including a text editor, a drawing editor, an experi-mental procedure editor and a data processing tool. LabBook has proven success in hybrid experimental science teaching.
– Supports collaborative active learning

– Efficient organisation of activities
– Gain time and energy for effective pedagogy
– Enables personalised guidance by the teacher
The software has been developed at University Grenoble Alpes by science education researchers. It has been tested for scientific laboratory classrooms since 2011 at high school and university level. It has proven operational and reliable. We are looking for partners to extend and commercialise LabBook and our associated know-how.
– Collaborative active learning
– Inquiry or Project-based learning
