Teaching and learning laboratories for didactic innovations for vocational training staff

Which problem is being solved?

Due to technological progress, which presents itself in the social sphere and, in particular, in modernized training, the demands on educational staff are increasing. As a result of the changing requirements, new digital media is used in some spectacular ways. These changes present difficulties for those who work in vocational education.

A structured qualification of trainers and teachers in a teaching and learning laboratory allows for tailor-made training for learning using the latest media such as augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing, and the Internet of Things (Internet of Things). This is groundbreaking, both technologically and didactically.

DIOS (didactic innovation labs) is a transnational project that develops, tests, assesses, and transmits teaching and learning scenarios for educational staff qualification. The emphasis is on hands-on training in chemistry, mechatronics, and information technology. Educational personnel are instructed to incorporate the training’s material, to expand it further, and to generate new content. As a result, DIOS

How is the problem solved?

  • Learning videos for the qualification of vocational training staff in chemistry (laboratory and plant), mechatronics, and IT using AR, VR, 360 ° videos, 3D printing, and IoT (intelligent sensors)
  • Learning videos for the qualification of vocational training staff in chemistry (laboratory and plant), mechatronics, and IT using AR, VR, 360 ° videos, 3D printing, and IoT (intelligent sensors)
  • Establishment of five teaching and learning laboratories for the qualification of trainers in vocational training in Germany, the Netherlands, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, and Cyprus • Development, testing, evaluation, and transfer of teaching and learning scenarios enriched with AR, VR, 360° videos, 3D printing, and IoT for practical training

Project summary

Firefighters are the role-model of modern heroes: a brave life safer in emergency situations. This positive image is tested each day and sometimes to the limit. Firefighters are all-rounders, rescuers, of persons and goods, and team-players. A wrong or slow response can set human lives at risk. To respond and react to emergencies accordingly, in a timely and a professional manner, firefighters need to be up to date. This helps them to catch up with the increased methodological, strategic and technical demands of modern firefighting.
