BMBF is funding research on Data and Media Skills in Virtual and Augmented Reality Classrooms (Project in DigiProMIN)

DigiProMIN (Digitization-related and digitally supported professional development of STEM teachers) is a BMBF-funded collaborative project started on April 01, 2023. The project aims to develop and implement a multidimensional strategy for the subject-specific and interdisciplinary, digitization-related and digitally supported professionalization of teachers for future-oriented STEM teaching.

In the DigiProMin project, eight national universities (University of Potsdam, IPN Kiel, TUM, HU Berlin, FU Berlin, University of Dortmund, University of Hamburg, and LMU) will come together for the vision to build a sustainable structure for an evidence-based, digitization-related teacher professionalization that will equip mathematics, computer science and natural science teachers with the necessary digital competencies for providing high-quality and digitally supported STEM education.

Our team will focus on developing and utilizing digitally-supported methods and instruments to record individual learning and interaction processes in virtual and augmented reality classrooms. This will not only allow us to identify central aspects of the teaching process but also to explore ways to use this data as a basis for teaching data and media skills.
