The labs of the Learning Planet Institute’s innovation hub have been designing, prototyping and producing tools for research projects and innovative pedagogy while also functioning as advisors in these areas. In short, they promote learning that combines design and technology.
GameLab Designs innovative games for science and education
HealthLab Brings interdisciplinarity into healthcare
MakerLab Develops open tools for research, education and learning projects
VR Frontiers Lab Explores Virtual Reality applications in education and interdisciplinary science
WetLab Synthetic biology experimental lab
In an effort to work towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the SDG School is a 4-week programme that helps students develop the individual and collective skills necessary to tackle the major challenges of our time. The programme results from the fusion of two complementary programmes, the S.T.E.A.M. School by Maker’s Asylum and our own Learning Planet Institute Labs Summer School, and is jointly run by the two organisations.
The SDG School focuses on efforts to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The Goals are a blueprint for building a better, more sustainable future for the entire planet, specifically in the areas of education, healthcare, equality, energy, production, consumption, climate change and strategic partnerships.
During this intensive 4-week programme, students gain familiarity with real-world development issues around the globe as well as with the new scientific methodologies and technologies that can solve them. Students are trained to think like social entrepreneurs and design impactful, meaningful projects. They can make games or devices or even create an art installation dealing with one of the SDGs. Experts are there to support and mentor students in game making, medicine, environmental science, digital fabrication, frugal innovation and much more!
Learning Planet Institute is taking the initiative of building a digital campus for #LearningPlanet. We want to offer users customized recommendations for learning resources based on their unique profiles as well as make it possible for them to share their learning projects with others and connect with our broader community of learners and mentors. Not only that, we’ll also reward users for their work! Our building on Rue Charles V in Paris is becoming a fully vested digital space, a pioneer digital open campus to hopefully inspire other like-minded learning spaces around the world.
To help your and others’ learning communities get off the ground, Learning Planet Institute is building a collaborative digital ecosystem with three connected platforms:
Learning Planet Institute is deploying state-of-the-art digital infrastructure, made available to researchers, staff, and students, not to mention the broader Learning Planet Institute community at large:
The Research Challenge Institute is the transformation incubator of the Université Paris Cité, co-created by the Learning Planet Institute and the Université Paris Cité.
We design action programmes to support all members of the university engaged in its ecological transition through :
