Digital teaching and learning materials

Funding programme

"Creation of digital teaching and learning materials with citizen science methods"- Submission closed!

The aim is to create innovative and practice-oriented digital teaching and learning materials that generate added value that would not be produced without the use of technical means. The citizen science approach (cooperation with learners, teachers or other specialized persons) contributes to the fact that the know-how of those people who work with digital teaching and learning materials is directly integrated into the development of the materials.

The first call

The first call for proposals of the funding programme supports projects that aim to revise existing teaching and learning materials on the online platform of the Eduthek with the support of learners and teachers. The final products must be available on the platform as Open Educational Resources (OER), under a free license.

The content of the teaching and learning materials should cover interdisciplinary topics such as mobility, migration, democracy, etc. By integrating the projects into the school environment, not only the innovative and practice-oriented teaching and learning materials are to be created, but also the conscious, selective, critical and targeted use of digital media in the classroom should be promoted.

Projects are funded up to a maximum of 25,000 euros per application, with a total amount of 200,000 euros available. The submission is already closed.

Announcement of funding decisions at the latest in the beginning of December 2018
Earliest possible project start January 2019
Participation of citizens February 2019 – June 2019

Announcement of the second call

Information on the 2nd call is expected to follow in November 2018.
