|Project management||Frank Reinhold|
|Funded by||Daimler and Benz Foundation|
|Funding period||Feb 15, 2021 to Feb 14, 2023|
Project goal: Implementation studies reveal positive effects of digital tools on learning outcomes. However, it has not yet been clarified how this positive effect can be explained from a psychological perspective. The project addresses this issue and investigates the effect of digitally supported learning settings on how students initiate and carry out learning activities in the context of fractions. Specifically, the motivational-emotional engagement of students and its effect on learning success will be examined and compared to paper-based learning settings.
