Testing

This year, two IMAILE prototypes of future personal learning environments (PLE) will come to selected Amigo Magdeburgschools to be tested with teachers and students in real scenarios.

Time schedule

  1. Start-up phase (January)
  2. Installation and pre testing phase (February)
  3. First real testing phase (6 of March – 13 of May)
  4. Interim analysis and Data collection phase (Mid  May – End of August)
  5. Second real testing phase (September)
  6. Final analysis and data collection phase (October)

This is an opportunity for schools to participate in a co-design process to shape these PLEs to meet the users demands and expectations of the future. This input/feedback from teachers and students in real classroom environment is of great importance in order to develop further innovative and useful solutions to support STEM personalized learning for our students in the future. IMAILE project appreciates this collaboration immensely. The active Primary and Lower Secondary schools involved in the project are from:

THANK YOU for supporting us!

IMAILE project is extremely grateful for the important work that all teachers and students will be doing when testing the two PLE prototype solutions during 2017. Therefore, we would like to promote our appreciation by awarding, at the end of the testing period, the schools and teachers an IMAILE certification and digital badge to verify the skills of the co-design process and user driven innovation experience.
