  1. 1. From Context to Competencies Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  2. 2. PISA and its outcome • Competencies? • Skills? • Key competencies? • Key skills? • ...something else? • Possible answer: Educational standards 20/09/2010 2 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  3. 3. How are eduactional standards made? 20/09/2010 3 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  4. 4. Educational standards for informatics 20/09/2010 4 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  5. 5. Remaining questions • Which competencies are important? • Are those competencies equal important? • How can we assure that all competencies were covered during a lecture? • Which contents should be used for lectures? • Motivation for the pupils & students? • How can the needed competencies for a lecture made transparent? 20/09/2010 5 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  6. 6. Possible answer: Informatics in Context (IniK) • Three goals: – Orientation on relevant contexts – Variety of teaching methods – Principles and standards – Or better: ...fundamental principles? and ...competencies?) 20/09/2010 6 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  7. 7. Informatics in context (IniK): The phases • The Entry Phase – E.g. first impulse, starting a discussion • The Working Phase – Student working groups • The Immersion and Linking Phase – Presenting of the student results • The Knowledge Assessment Phase – Questions to control and assess the gained competencies 20/09/2010 7 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  8. 8. Informatics in context (IniK): File Sharing • The Entry Phase – E.g.: Writing down the word „pirate copy“ or „I have heard that a student has been questioned by the police for sharing music files online.“ or articles on the topic. – Students discuss their perspective and experience – After that, they state questions • The Working Phase – Students discuss their questions – Teachers: • Advise and DON‘T GUIDE • provide and prepare materials 20/09/2010 8 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  9. 9. Informatics in context (IniK): File Sharing • The Immersion and Linking Phase – Students present their results in class and discuss them together – A lawyer could review the results – The students discuss how to present the results to the school / their parents and plan it 20/09/2010 9 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  10. 10. Informatics in context (IniK): File Sharing • The Knowledge Assessment Phase – Possible questions to control and assess the gained competencies: • Explicate the way of data from the Net to your PC when starting a download. (Draw sketch) • Sort the necessary steps and technical parts • Explicate how the law was violated. • Explain what should have been different to assure that no law was broken. Another step could be made by adopting the concept to another content: – Compare file sharing to streaming technology used by web-TV sites 20/09/2010 10 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  11. 11. Example: Writing a text • Three ways of writing a text: – Old fashioned way with a pen on paper – Using a typewriter – Using a word processing system • Even so, the medium has changed, the writer still needs the skill to write texts: – Designing the text (structure, skill to use the right words) • In addition: Knowledge about the medium – How is a pen used on paper? – 10-finger-system, how to push the types – Use of the computer, use of the specific application 20/09/2010 11 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  12. 12. 20/09/2010 12 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
  13. 13. Todo • Gather a set of interesting contexts • Identify the important competencies • Possible reviews of existing standards for informatics • ...and possible help with their improvement 20/09/2010 13 Ira Diethelm Christina Dörge
