Abstract: This systematic literature review addresses strongly on makerspaces in schools. An evaluation of literature about their status-quo shows qualitative and quantitative knowledge gaps in the relatively new field of makerspaces in and used by schools according to infrastructure, funding, and administration. A taxonomy concerning physical existing makerspaces in schools and used by schools including parameters like location, responsibilities, financing, instructors, users, time restrictions, and feasible maker activities is developed. Two different electronic journal databases, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and ScienceDirect, acted as source for this literature review. Most of this existing literature concentrates on the educational maker activities and only some feature additional information like the physical space, the financing or else. Nonetheless, these rare findings suggest four main categories of real-world makerspaces used for educational pur-poses in schools: External makerspaces, school makerspaces, open makerspaces located in schools, and temporary (Pop-up) makerspaces. Furthermore, we identified the need for investigations on the question of open makerspaces located in schools and the financial and organizational structure to operate them.
Jedes Jahr gibt uns der Horizon Report eine Idee was die derzeigen Trends und Entwicklungen im Berich Educational Technology weltweit sein. Aufgrund der CoVid19-Pandemie haben sich nun doch auch deutliche Änderungen ergeben oder es sind gänzlich neue Punkte aufgetreten, wie z. B das Thema der hybriden Lehre.
Kurzum ich kann nur empfehlen den Bericht anzusehen, aber wer gleich wissen möchte was die Key-Trends sind, hier sind diese einmal gelistet:
Abstract: In university teaching, a massive open online course (MOOC) is often regarded as an isolated online course, typically addressing a broad public of lifelong learners or future students. Nevertheless, some universities use MOOCs as a lecture for their students or use MOOCs as integrated part of their own lectures. In this study, we focus on a lecture concept called „Pre-MOOC“, where a MOOC is an obligative first part of a lecture in higher education, followed by lecture-part only open for own students and typically in presence. Therefore, we explore the current state of practices and research on Pre-MOOCs and describe our design-based research approach, the development of the MOOC and evaluation of its implementation in 2019. The article describes the instructional design process of the lecture in a master program of electrical engineering in which we used the instructional design model ADDIE. Finally, we will analyze the results of the evaluation with regard to the concept of a Pre-MOOC. Based on feedback from students and teachers, recommendations for designing a course with the Pre-MOOC design will be provided and implications as well limitations of the study will be discussed.

Martin is invited to give a keynote talk at this year „International Seminar on Language, Education, and Culture – ISoLEC 2021„. His talk will be about maker education and methodological-didactical variants of it with a special eye on children and youth.
In six sections (see sections’ calls for chapters), this edited volume aims to contribute to the discussion about how to agree upon standards to design and organize learning with technologies, how to streamline future developments using online delivery, multimedia content as well as machine learning in educational settings in higher education and respective institutions, and how to put respective measures for quality assurance and validation processes into practice. This work will present a rich resource for contemporary and future design considerations in technology supported higher education.
We plan to publish this book in the first half of 2022 in Springer publishing house (Cham).

„Conversational user interfaces“ sind in den letzten Jahren vermehrt und in verschiedenen Ausprägungen – als textbasierte Chatbots, Digitale Assistentinnen oder sprachbegabte Roboter – im Alltag anzutreffen und mit unterschiedlichen Vorstellungen und Erwartungen verknüpft. Wie ist ihr Potenzial für Hochschulen und insbesondere für die Hochschullehre einzuschätzen? Der Vortrag befasst sich mit verschiedenen (realistischen) Möglichkeiten, Chatbots und Co. zu erstellen und an Hochschulen einzusetzen, und präsentiert Erfahrungen und Erkenntnisse aus dem Förderprojekt „Künstliche Interaktionspartnerinnen an Hochschulen“.
Zuerst wird Michael Raunig einen Impulsvortrag geben, um dann danach gemeinsam mit Sandra Hummels und Vanessa Mai am Podium zu diskutieren. Wie immer kostenlos, aber wir freuen uns auf viele Fragen und Anregungen 🙂 .
