Abstract (technical / expert description):

Logo

The increasing digitalisation of all areas of life also necessitates the digitalisation of educational systems. Digital media offer numerous opportunities. The “Digital Campus” project aims to promote digital literacy skills among trainee teachers in primary schools. The starting point is the idea that skills among students, in particular, can be achieved if the skills are available among their teachers. This in turn requires lecturers involved in teacher training to have these skills available.

In the course of the “IT Skills” certificate attained by students, general competencies in the professional use of media as well as media-didactic and media-related skills are fostered. Focus is placed on media-related professional knowledge, reflection, and criticism of existing media learning environments, as well as on the ability to individually shape learning environments. The UR (University of Regensburg) classes strive to ascertain whether this affects pupils.

Project Content


The “Digital Campus” project aims to strengthen the domain-specific basic IT competencies of lecturers and trainee primary school teachers. In the process, inclusion into the teaching offering as part of the study pathway “Teacher training for primary schools” operates on three levels:

Students

Lecturers

Pupils

Occupational competencies

Qualification

Connection to the practice through UR classes

Ability to reflect

Use of digital media in the university

Increased skills

Knowledge of general criteria

Domain-specific professionalisation with occupational-didactic, primary school-pedagogical, and media-didactic elements

Learning gains

Creation of digital learning environments for primary school pupils

Joint work on the interdisciplinary IT competency of prospective teachers

Increased media competencies

Ability to reflect on one’s own actions

 

Individualisation

 

 

Media differentiation and adaptivity

 

The aim is to promote the skills of university lecturers, trainee teachers, and pupils in the digitalised world. The programme promotes general skills in the professional use of media as well as media-didactic and media-education skills. A higher level of skill among lecturers should contribute to a higher output in seminars as a result of model learning and a higher media-didactic level in courses, as well as an expansion of the skills of students. Focus is placed on media-related professional knowledge, reflection, and criticism of existing media learning environments, as well as on the ability to individually shape learning environments. The UR (University of Regensburg) classes strive to ascertain whether this affects pupils. 

As part of this, students can attain the “Medienpädagogik Basiskompetenzen-Zertifikat” [Certificate for Basic Competencies in Media Pedagogics]. This will initially be offered for teachers in training in primary schools, with the further aim of extending to trainee teaching posts at middle schools, vocational schools, and grammar schools.
