D-MasterGuide develops digital learning stations for media competence development in the finishing trade.
Tools for digital media use are integrated into master craftsman training and the added value of innovative technologies in the plasterer trade is highlighted.
The technological basis is the Smart Guided Learning System. Over this, media competence is acquired through the interactive processing of content and tasks, supported by means of process guidance and enriched with the help of innovative and technology-centered learning methods such as virtual reality (VR).
In a nutshell
In the project consortium, a didactic concept for media use is anchored in a learning platform and this is expanded to include required components, functionalities and interfaces. Tools for digital media use will be integrated into master craftsman training and their acceptance and learning transfer will be evaluated. The focus is on teaching media skills and the added value of innovative technologies in the plasterer’s trade, such as increasing efficiency and optimizing work. At the same time, the content is aligned with real work processes and thus designed for practical use.
The so-called Smart Guided Learning System is the technological basis of D-MasterGuide and consists of several components. In addition to a technology-centered learning approach using VR, a crucial component is the recommendation component. This “self-learning assistant” supports the personal consolidation of the learning content.
Digitalization in small and medium-sized companies in the finishing trade is under discussion in many places. In some pioneering companies, the first IT-based concepts for work support are currently being implemented. However, there is still great potential, particularly in the finishing trade, with regard to digital interfaces between construction site management and the company back office.
This is due to the often rather poorly developed technological skills and the lack of acceptance of new media. In particular, there is a lack of solid didactic concepts and learning solutions for continuing education and training in the finishing trade.
The August-Wilhelm Scheer Institute develops 2 basic components:
Process Guidance. The so-called Smart Guided Learning System consists of several components, of which we are responsible for the Process Guidance and the VR learning station including a recommendation component. In this way, media competence is acquired through the interactive processing of content and tasks and deepened by means of a recommendation component, a “self-learning assistant”.
Anchored Instructions. This includes the design and creation of various content modules that are used in the learning stations with technology-centric learning methods such as virtual reality.
The D-MasterGuide project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
