Funded Projects 2017

Project Digital Learning – Research-based Learning

Project Digital Learning – Research-based Learning

Project leader: Prof. Dr. Andreas Grünewald (Faculty 10 Linguistics and Literary Studies)

In this project, the didactic potential of applications (apps) and end devices is researched together with the students – ideal practical preparation for their future tasks as teachers. Integrating digital media in educational processes is not an end in itself, though, as it is done in a technical context: Subject-related learning units are processed digitally. This necessarily calls for the involvement of subject didactics. In this sense, the project strengthens Bremen as a place of innovative learning.
