The PELARS project aims to gain a greater understanding of the learning process, and how to support teachers and students, through the use of technology in the classroom. We have created an environment that traces the patterns of learning created by students while working in small groups during STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and Design education. By comparing these patterns, we seek to understand how students learn and to create different tools and methods to integrate this information into the classroom.

The exhibition showcases the outcomes of the PELARS project which represent the cumulative effort of academic and industry partners drawn from ten European countries. Using interactive elements, it will bring visitors along a timeline of exploration and tell the story of how the project developed. Join us in the NCAD Gallery on Thursday, 23rd March and share our journey into the creation of patterns of learning.
