Adaptive Learning Environments

The project "Adaptive Learning Environments" investigates which individual preconditions teachers conceive as risk factors regarding academic achievement, which instructions they give to assist children individually and when and why they give these instructions.

Project description

To support children’s positive development, early intervention in terms of individual assistance according to the preconditions and needs of learners is necessary. It is necessary to diagnose the preconditions and needs of pupils, and to accompany them in their individual learning. At the same time, each child has to reach basic academic standards. Teaching staff are challenged daily by the task of connecting these different aims at school. The project “Adaptive Learning Environments” investigates which individual preconditions teachers conceive as risk factors regarding academic achievement, which instructions they give to assist children individually and when and why they give these instructions. How can instruction provide an adaptive learning environment? According to the aims of the IDeA research centre, particular emphasis is given to children with learning difficulties in the area of reading and writing or arithmetic as well as to those with behavioural problems or emotional disorders. The aim of the project is to develop learning environments in everyday school life that assist children’s positive development as well as to develop teacher trainings in adaptive learning environments.

This project is a precursor to the IDeA – project IGEL and it collaborates with the IDeA – project elbe.
