About the lecture
The main application of digital media is not emergency distance teaching during a pandemic. Even in a world of face-to-face teaching, digital media are becoming increasingly important for (prospective) teachers for two reasons: (1) From a media didactic perspective, they can enrich teaching, which also requires (new) media pedagogical competences from (prospective) teachers. Furthermore, (2) digital media and the necessity of media competence are gaining importance for students from a media pedagogical perspective, e.g. in the sense of promoting media competence in the context of successful (digital) participation. The lecture will go into both reasons in more detail and discuss possible implications for teacher education.
