The research groups FALK invites to an open guest lecture with Isa Jahnke, on the topic Digital didactics.

Jahnke is Professor in ICT, media and learning at the Department of Applied Educational Sciences, group Interactive Media and Learning (IML) at Umeå University in Sweden.

In the age of Web 2.0 and social media, a constantly omnipresent online presence is available - the ubiquitous access to information is quickly and easily. The teachers present theories, models and results, and some students "google" at the same time whether that is true what is being said.

For the"Homo Interneticus" it is normal to search for facts. Discussions and learning cultures are changing. What are appropriate didactical teaching-learning scenarios in which Web 2.0 and Educational Apps/Technology can be integrated to strengthens active learning (student engagement) and collaborative learning?

The talk gives answers in form of case studies and theses which illustrate changes towards digital didactical designs in universities and schools. Digital media enable learning in unexpected places online through established boundaries. If this is the case, then we face the challenge to design teaching, learning and didactics in a new way – instead of a ‘text book learning’ only, that represents receptive, consumer-oriented teaching, we need creativity-focused didactical designs to enhance a meaningful learning experience.
