Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is NEWTON? 

NEWTON Project was created to increase learner quality of experience, improve learning process and increase learning outcome. The motivation behind the project comes from the disengagement of European students from Science, and the primary aim of the project is to make Science relevant, interesting and enjoyable for all students.

2. What is TEL?

TEL stands for Technology Enhanced Learning, where technology is used to enhance the learning experience. In practice, this usually means students and teachers using smartphones, tablets, laptops or PCs in their teaching and learning. TEL also includes the use of other technologies, such as augmented reality and virtual reality.

3. What are Fab Labs? 

Fab Labs, or Fabrication Laboratories, are small-scale workshops, where students can carry out digital fabrication. They can, for example, create their own design and use a 3D printer to build it. In a Fab Lab, you have an array of computer-controlled tools and different materials, which allow you to build almost anything!

4. What are Virtual Labs? 

Virtual Labs, also called online labs, are created to give students a chance to practice their Science experiments in a safe environment, using their smartphones, tablets, laptops or PCs. In Virtual Labs, the impossible experiments become possible, there is no limit to the number of times students can carry out an experiment, and no restrictions by time or geography: they can study anywhere, anytime, at their own pace.

5. What are AR and VR? 

AR, or Augmented Reality, and VR, Virtual Reality, bring a whole new dimension to learning. AR adds digital elements to a live view, thus adding to or enhancing real surroundings. in VR, the user is completely immersed in an experience that shuts out the physical world.
