The idea behind DataMedia

Digital educational media have to meet many demands – they have to function perfectly from a technical point of view, use up-to-date elements appropriate to the target group, offer an appealing, clearly structured design, allow a variety of methods and media, permit options for use, etc. However, their educational success depends decisively on whether a digital educational medium has been created on the basis of a didactically sound teaching and learning concept. Only in this way can the enormous potential of these media be fully utilised and teaching and learning processes be designed in a variety of ways to meet individual needs and demands.

The European Comenius-EduMedia-Award of the Gesellschaft für Pädagogik, Information und Medien e.V. (GPI e.V.; Society for

pedagogics, information and media, registered association) since 1995 annually evaluates several hundred of educational media und awards these a Siegel (Seal) or Medaille (Medal) as a symbol of high pedagogic, didactic and medial quality. The foundation for evaluation scheme in DataMedia are the projects and research done by experts on a European level by experts for the Comenius-EduMedia-Award.

The overall goal of DataMedia is to place the evaluation of digital educational media on a broad footing, reaching beyond the impact of the Comenius-Award. This includes giving teachers und users the opportunity to evaluate themselves to render the selection of digital educational media well founded.

DigiKomp – Media literacy for the evaluation of digital educational media

Since the evaluation of digital educational media requires media literacy of the instructors, the DataMedia -team developed “DigiKomp”. It is a model-course to train instructors in the evaluation

of digital educational media. The theoretical foundation from the model course can be practically applied and exercised in the DataMedia evaluation tool.
