Discovery Space: An AI-Enhanced Classroom for Deeper Learning in STEM

Discovery Space proposes the development of a roadmap for the AI-Enhanced Classroom for Deeper Learning in STEM that facilitates the transformation of the traditional classroom to an environment that promotes the scientific exploration and monitors and supports the development of key skills for all students.

The project starts with a foresight research exercise to increase the understanding of the potential, opportunities, barriers, accessibility issues and risks of using emerging technologies (AI-enabled assessment systems combined with AR/VR interfaces) for STEM teaching, considering at the same time a framework for the sustainable digitisation of education.

The project will design an Exploratory Learning Environment (Discovery Space) to facilitate students’ inquiry and problem-solving while they are working with virtual and remote labs. This will be enabled with AI-driven lifelong learning companions to provide support and guidance and with VR/AR interfaces to enhance the learning experience, to facilitate collaboration and problem solving.

Discovery Space will also provide Good Practices of Scenarios and pilots to equip teachers and learners with the skills necessary for the use of technology in creative, critical and inclusive ways as well as to develop an adequate Teacher Training Academy in relation with the practices in the AI-Enhanced Classroom.
