As the title suggests, this MOOC deals with the use of digital media in both teaching and learning. It is primarily a first introduction to this large complex of topics and is intended to help students acquire the appropriate media skills for their own teaching.
In addition to definitions and explanations, practical examples are shown and tips and tricks for everyday teaching are given, so that the first own use should be possible afterwards.
For the time being, the content is aimed specifically at teacher training students of all subjects, but of course also at teachers in the profession as well as all interested persons who want to learn more about the possible uses of digital media.
completing this MOOC you will:
- have basic knowledge of media informatics, media didactics and specific legal frameworks and be able to explain them.
- know a variety of examples from practice, which you can adapt and apply to your respective situations.
learning objectives for each unit can be found in the individual module
The course comprises a total of six units on the following topics, which are interlinked and interrelated:
- Fundamentals of media informatics
