How SmartLab Learning @Home Works
This robust learning bundle is perfect for remote, blended, or in-person learning models. And, because kits can be sanitized and restocked, you can use them for an entire semester—and beyond!
STEP 1: School Receives Bundle
Receive preassembled, ready-to-use backpacks with 12 or 18 different project-based engagements in bundles of 24 or 36 kits.
STEP 2: Student “Checks Out” a Backpack
Each student “checks out” a backpack to use for the week. The open-ended engagements provide 5–7 hours of learning per backpack. Engagements rotate through our eight systems of technology.
STEP 3: Child Engages in Project-Based Learning
Each bundle contains two of each kit so students can engage in open-ended activities while collaborating with another student using an identical kit.
STEP 4: Student Returns Backpack and Gets a New One
At the end of the week, learners return the kits and receive new ones that have been sanitized and restocked with materials.
“Oh, we can do that ourselves.”
We hear that a lot.
Until someone sits down and tries to develop dynamic, project-based curriculum, source a suite of long-lasting technology and complementary cross-curricular books, and then assemble and deliver it so it’s ready to use on the first day of school.
And that’s just for one kit!
With the unknowns of the upcoming school year, we want you to be able to focus on your students. So with the SmartLab Learning @Home system, we’ve done the work for you.
With our 5-step framework, students build knowledge as they follow their curiosity.
