Longitudinal study on the use of tablets in the classroom...

In the current school year, the Professorship for Business Education under the scientific direction of Professor Karl-Heinz Gerholz and Markus Dormann will explore the use of tablets in vocational education. The cooperation project with the State Vocational School 2 Aschaffenburg will analyze the effects of tablet classes in the form of a longitudinal study.

The State Vocational School 2 is a finalist in the i.s.i competition and with its developed and implemented media concept, the optimal school partner to scientifically accompany and evaluate digital teaching approaches. In addition, an experienced media expert on the school side will cooperate with the project manager, teacher StD Matthias Fünffinger. The financial and technical realization was made possible by Goran Hauser from the Institute for Transformation and Innovation. "The study succeeds in better understanding lessons with regard to action situations, competence orientation and the use of digital media", says Prof. Karl-Heinz Gerholz at the start of the project. "Our research interest in the cooperation project is in particular to raise the long-term effect of the use of tablets (convertibles) in commercial vocational education and to accompany them with suitable digital teaching concepts", explains Markus Dormann.
