Thanks to the FabLab Onaki, set up by the First Peoples Innovation Center (CIPP) in 2018, young Indigenous people who have dropped out of the school system can learn about technologies and discover new horizons. At the same time, they gain confidence in themselves and in their learning potential.
As part of a RÉCIT webinar on creative laboratories, various stakeholders in the education sector introduced their laboratory in addition to demonstrating the concrete application of technological tools.
Thanks to the will of the deputy director and the members of the creation committee, the Sorel-Tracy Vocational Training and Adult Education Center recently launched its FABLAB, this manufacturing laboratory using machine tools controlled by computers. The École branchée was there.
We met Chantal Larivière, pedagogical advisor in the TacTIC team at CFORP and Julie Campeau, pedagogical advisor at CEPEO, who talk to us about the potential of the creative laboratory (makerspace) to bring out students' creativity.
Can I start a creative lab in my community? What material do i need? Where to start and what are the approaches to favor in such a space? The RÉCIT Webinar on Creative Laboratories explored these questions and opened the door to new collaborations.
