Current Work Status
The team of school pedagogy currently focusses on didactical needs analyses. By means of literature reviews and interviews, we research aspects and methods which contribute to preservice teachers’ pedagogically sound and effective working with the ViLeArn application in their teacher education program. We also consider the teacher educators’ perspective to ensure that teacher educators are able to apply virtual reality in general and the ViLeArn application in particular successfully in their teaching.
