Abstract

Objective: This study aims to investigate the trajectory and contributions of the Remote Experimentation Laboratory (RExLab) over its 27 years of existence, focusing on the integration of technology in education and its relevance to teaching and learning.

 

Theoretical Framework: RExLab was founded in 1997 with the aim of promoting digital inclusion and democratization of science education through the provision of Remote Laboratories. Over the years, the research group has added more resources to its projects, such as the integration of technologies in education, teacher training, and the creation of Open Educational Resources (OER), receiving several awards and distinctions along the way.

 

Method: The research adopted a documentary and bibliographical approach, tracking the evolution and impact of RExLab from its inception to the present moment. Data collection was conducted through the analysis of documents and publications related to RExLab.

 

Results and Discussion: The results highlight RExLab's contributions to the integration of technology in education, demonstrating its role in generating practical knowledge to solve specific problems and in understanding the experiences and perceptions related to technology in education. The discussion contextualizes these results in light of the theoretical framework, emphasizing the importance of RExLab for teaching and learning.

 

Research Implications: This research reflects on how RExLab can continue to be an ally in the integration of technology in education, even in the face of future challenges. Its implications encompass both the field of education and applied research.

 

Originality/Value: This study contributes to the literature by highlighting the importance of RExLab as a successful model in the integration of technology in education over time. Its relevance lies in the emphasis on the practical application of research and in promoting equality through education.
