LITE - Laboratory of Innovation on Technology in Education


Veja abaixo os principais projetos desenvolvidos pelo LITE
Go to RoPE


Programmable Educational Robots is a project that promotes the construction and availability of programming toys for Early Childhood schools. Toys are developed and enhanced based on the experiences of teachers and children.

Go to Portugol Studio

Portugol Studio

Portugol Studio is an Integrated Development Environment with emphasis on learning how to program. It is meant for programming beginners who speak portuguese. It retains a simple syntax, multiple examples and materials for learning support. It also makes the creation of games and tons of other applications possible!

Go to Lite is Cool

Lite is Cool

The project aims to teach concepts about robotics and programming to High School students from a local High School in Itajaí, Nereu Ramos in a fun and different way! We do so by encouraging the search for knowledge in the areas of Engineering and Computing.



Taking the culture maker to the classrooms is the purpose of this project. “Do it yourself”. This is the idea of ​​LiteMaker, a mobile with low cost of production and low assembly complexity, that can break the barriers of laboratories and serve young people and children of different ages.

Pesquisa e inovação tecnologica para melhoria da educação.

The Laboratory of Technological Innovation in Education (LITE) is a space that integrates research, the development of technological products and processes geared to educational activities. It includes undergraduate, master's and doctoral research carried out within the scope of the Univali Education Computer Group. It also promotes activities to extend this research to society, especially to the school public.

LITE seeks to incorporate the work style of the maker movement, offering opportunities for its members to develop their creative potential combined with the improvement of scientific knowledge. Among the main lines of action of the Laboratory is the production of technology that stimulates the development of Computational Thinking.
