What are the IgnitED Labs?
The IgnitED Labs make up an innovative technology hub to bring emergent technologies and innovative pedagogical approaches together through an humanistic lens. Founded in the knowledge that humans are the center of technological advancements and processes, IgnitED Labs presents interactions, products, and services aimed to provide pathways to gaining new skill sets and mindsets. At the core of our operations are three tenets: a futures thinking perspective guided by Principled Innovation to design human-centered products and services to connect with lifelong learners and a range of educators.
Experience the labs
The IgnitED Labs are open in a virtual capacity to all ASU students, faculty, and staff. Individuals can visit us through IgnitED Labs Online. Post-pandemic, we will return to normal operations with three Labs across the Phoenix area ASU campus network, with locations at Tempe Campus, Polytechnic Campus, and West Campus. If you have a group (or class) and would like to arrange a remote workshop, training, or demonstration, please contact our staff. We will do our best to work with you to facilitate creative experiences in the IgnitED Labs with a focus on humanizing technology to engage learners of all types and abilities.
Moving beyond code with programmables
The IgnitED Labs provide a space for working with 21st-century skills to incorporate robotics and technology with STEAM activities across a variety of subject areas and disciplines.
The Labs feature new opportunities for students to demonstrate their understanding of complex topics and ideas through robotics. Teachers will discover creative and approachable pathways to interest students of all ages in the educational encounters available with technology.
