BOSTON — June 22, 2022 — Labster, the world's leading platform for virtual labs and interactive science, is demonstrating its comprehensive education technology (EdTech) solution for high schools and universities at the International Society for Technology in Education ISTELive 2022 conference and expo taking place June 26-29 both virtually and in-person. Labster will be exhibiting in booth 2545 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, where the company is highlighting the ease of integrating Labster into STEM classrooms around the country. Labster simulations can be played on a variety of devices — from computers to tablets to Chromebooks — and integrated with existing tools including Google Classroom.
Labster will also be included in the invitation-only Intel® suite. The company will demonstrate how the immersive virtual 3D Labster simulations stream seamlessly across devices powered by 12th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile processors. Engineered for blazing performance and superior productivity, the newest lineup of thin-and-light laptops enables busy students to multitask and juggle concurrent streaming applications and downloads with ease.
“Our goal at Labster is to make teachers’ lives easier and help reduce their workload while also engaging and inspiring their students with a fascination for science and the global challenges we can solve with it,” said Michael Bodekaer Jensen, co-founder and chief executive officer of Labster. “Labster helps teachers to make better use of precious lab time and reduce grading time. It creates a competitive streak within students for completing assignments that are entertaining as well as educational. And with the new integrations we’re rolling out at ISTELive, high school teachers will find it even easier to weave Labster into their existing curriculum and systems.”
For a full decade, Labster EdTech has provided educators with the ability to digitally explore and enhance their science offerings. Labster makes it easy for teachers to supplement their in-classroom activities with Labster virtual simulations. Labster is especially useful for pre- and post-lab assignments, so teachers can fully optimize the time students spend on-site in physical laboratories.
Instead of using a slide deck or a video in their curriculum, a teacher slots in Labster interactive labs which take advantage of gamification techniques and entertaining real-world scenarios to boost student enthusiasm and engagement. As a result, research and case studies demonstrate that students perform better in physical labs and score higher in tests as a result of their prep work on the Labster platform.
At ISTELive, Labster is debuting several new capabilities that make it a particularly inclusive and attractive EdTech offering for high school educators as well as administrators and technical support teams:
In fact, Labster recently engaged a third-party learning experience design research team to conduct independent semester-long studies of K-12 schools using Labster to build a portfolio of evidence that meets the rigor of Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requirements for science education material procurement.
As a testament to Labster’s momentum in the EdTech space, it recently earned the “Best Technology Learning Platform” award in the 2022 EdTech Breakthrough Awards program. The company was already recognized in the same program in 2021 as “Overall STEM Education Solution Provider of the Year.”
Labster is dedicated to developing fully interactive virtual training simulations that are designed to enhance traditional learning outcomes by stimulating students’ natural curiosity and reinforcing the connection between science and the real world. The simulations can be used in a variety of different ways, from a full lab replacement to a supplemental learning activity. Over 5 million students in high schools and universities have used Labster to perform realistic experiments, learn key science concepts, and practice their skills in a risk-free learning environment. Labster’s 350-plus team members from over 30 countries are passionate about improving science learning, resulting in collaborations with over 3,000 leading educational institutions.
