The Future of STEM Learning
Idea factory for classes with digital media
Science classes with digital media are fascinating and exciting for students and teachers alike. But modern technology can only enrich student learning if it’s used in a way that maximizes the educational benefits.
Over the next three years, the “Future of STEM Learning” project will develop innovative ways to do just that. The project partners are the Humboldt University of Berlin, the University of Kaiserslautern, Kiel University, the University of Koblenz-Landau and the University of Würzburg. They were picked at the end of a competitive nationwide selection process.
Starting in fall 2018, the five universities will jointly develop and test ideas for teaching high-quality STEM classes in the digital world and then integrate these ideas into STEM teacher training programs. Deutsche Telekom Stiftung is investing a total of EUR 1.6 million in the project. The universities will be supported in their development efforts by experts from Germany, Estonia, the Netherlands and Austria.
