Discussing Educational Standards for Digital Competence and/or Informatics Education at Lower Secondary Level

  • Participants of this workshop will be confronted exemplarily with a considerable inconsistency of global Informatics education at lower secondary level. More importantly, they are invited to contribute actively on this issue in form of short case studies of their countries. Until now, very few countries have been successful in implementing Informatics or Computing at primary and lower secondary level. The spectrum from digital literacy to informatics, particularly as a discipline in its own right, has not really achieved a breakthrough and seems to be underrepresented for these age groups. The goal of this workshop is not only to discuss the anamnesis and diagnosis of this fragmented field, but also to discuss and suggest viable forms of therapy in form of setting educational standards. Making visible good practices in some countries and comparing successful approaches are rewarding tasks for this workshop.

Discussing and defining common educational standards on a transcontinental level for the age group of 14 to 15 years old students in a readable, assessable and acceptable form should keep the participants of this workshop active beyond the limited time at the workshop.show moreshow less
