Project week

Within this module, a guide for teachers will be developed. This guide will contain a detailed concept for a project week at schools on the topic of IT career orientation. The core and related learning content and materials will be conceptualised in the course of time.

Why are we developing this product?

  • Project weeks at schools are a good method of promoting modern working techniques and enabling pupils to practise a variety of complex tasks, as well as to act in a goal-oriented way and within a team, thus preparing them for the demands of working life.

  • Educational mandate of schools: "To prepare pupils adequately for life in society [...]." This includes preparing pupils for the professional world.

Objectives and target groups

  • Pupils are introduced to careers in the IT sector at an early stage through a playful approach, so that a cliché-free and practical career orientation can take place. 

  • The ability to work in a team is furthermore strengthened.

  • Teachers are relieved, as they are not the direct mediators of the learning content and do not have to acquire the knowledge required.

  • The concept can be applied at any school within the framework of project weeks.

Expected results & time frame

The development of this intellectual output is scheduled from May 2021 to November 2022.

Results will be:

  • Digital guide for teachers (English)

  • Analogue material used to create the project objective

  • Digital teaching material (English)

  • Development of a feedback questionnaire for pupils on the content of the project weeks.

  • Renewed interest survey of the participating pupils in order to determine a change in their attitude towards the occupational field of IT.

  • Adaptation of the guidelines for a project week on the basis of the feedback collected after project week 1 (2022) and project week 2 (2022).
