UniVirtual Lab e-learning technologies Lab For the Interuniversity Center CIRDFA (Centro Interateneo per la Ricerca Didattica e la Formazione Avanzata)
Univirtual Lab The inspiring idea Nowadays the knowledge demand in every context of work and social interaction, address people to search for lifelong and lifewide learning This put the bases for personalized education, both of high quality and easily accessible; eLearning seems to be one of the best strategies to satisfy both criteria, enhancing possibilities for learners to experience ubiquitous learning, a strong possibility of personal and institutional development
Univirtual Lab The starting point … UnivirtualLabwasfounded on 1999 with the aimofdeveloping online teacherseducationcourses, implementedby SSIS of VENETO (SchoolofEspecializationforSecondaryTeaching) In the followingyears, the Labhaswidenits scope, participating in severalinternational and nationalprojectswhereithasexperimentedvirtuallearningenvironments, net basedlearningtools, and training oftrainersto the useof educational technologies
Today, the Lab provides support for learning&instructional design, with an approach to innovation in educational technologies, and strongly supported by research evidence, in collaboration with CIRDFA (Interuniversity Center for Educational Research and Advanced Training) Univirtual Lab …Today

Univirtual Lab A training framework: ILEP (Margiotta, 2006)(information, laboratory , evaluation, personalization) ILEP is an instrumental framework that defines a teaching progressively oriented to promote different steps in the dynamic, cognitive and metacognitive growing up of the students. The ILEP framework contains and formalizes the following hypothetical steps of the teaching action: INFORMATION:This step cover the process that communicates knowledge, focused on the activation and the organisation on knowledge and experience schemes. The teacher, in this step, promotes on student the acquisition of new information, new patterns of reasoning and analogical understanding LAB:This step includes activities where students learn to explore, prove, falsify, and corroborate what they learn; laboratory is the experimental environment in which students learn to apply what it is known in different and problematic environments of human experience. ASSESSMENT: This third step relates to recursive stages of analysis, interpretation and justification of learning results with a particular focus on their generalization. This step could be characterized as a continuous participatory analysis of learning process by students. PERSONALIZATION:This is a recursive action that promotes students’ capacities to explore and to identify rules with which it Is possible to discover new rules of knowledge /experience composition and combination. This is an inventive step: students learn to mastery knowledge and experiences, to gain and to equilibrate attitudes, to understand differences in the largest world, to speak different alphabets , to act a well founded citizenship.

UNIVIRTUAL LAB … AWAP : a special case of Personal Learning Environment What’s AWAP? It stands for Ambiente Web per l’apprendimento personalizzato (personal learning environment on the Web) which aim is to make interact LMS with WEB 2.0 according to user’s motivations and scopes HOW? Through highly flexible platforms, which are interoperable and allow hence the necessary simplicity and usability to keep “natural” user’s environments and tools connected within the learning experience .
