Project "School of Tomorrow"

The digitalization of schools is making great strides forwards. This is bound up with higher outlay, both financial and in terms of staff allocation. However, the majority of digitalized teaching and learning aids and materials have, hitherto, undergone hardly any empirical examination at all. The objective of this study is to develop an empirically validated Web application for acquiring a second language as a supplement to current teaching and learning methods. The Web application is based on empirically tried and tested teaching and learning strategies from the learning and memory field of research of cognitive psychology: distributed learning, retrieval training, corrective feedback and multisensory coding. It also involves investigating which combination of learning principles brings the greatest learning success. At the same time, the project researchers consider the extent to which the additional use of the Web application is superior to current teaching and learning methods. The project is being carried out by the Swiss Distance Learning University in collaboration with schools in the Valais canton.
