Innovation Lab

The Innovation Lab course is a hands-on study of technology integration in an educational context which is currently available at Loveland High School, but will be coming soon to Loveland Middle School for the 2017-2018 school year. 

As a member of the Innovation Lab, students will be required to troubleshoot and assess problems on a daily basis, while researching, troubleshooting and defining the best approach to addressing or solving the problem. In addition to solving problems for students and teachers, students will be required to complete and maintain several running projects that address problems or solutions in educational technology integration. Other components of the course include:
  • Creating and maintaining a digital portfolio that will chronicle the student experience as an Innovation Lab member.
  • Constructing a personal passion project where students will identify a challenging idea or topic to explore and pursue as an Innovation Lab member. 
  • Communicate and collaborate with other Innovation Lab members, as well as sharing their experience through other digital and face-to-face means of communication.
  • Contribute their knowledge and skillset to the Loveland School and community through the Innovation Lab Academy training resource (coming soon). 
This course seeks students who are self-motivated learners and use inquiry to drive their exploration and experiment in order to reach greater discovery. It is a course where failing is an option on occasion (and encouraged!).
