Media lending & consulting
Media lending & consulting
The media center of the Waldeck-Frankenberg district supports not only teachers, but all people in the field of youth and adult education. Whether through the rental of audiovisual media and equipment or the online provision of digital educational media for the school sector. This includes advice and training on the competent use of media and devices: The center helps to promote the media competence and education of children, young people and adults.
Digital teaching material
The district's media center has put a large stock of films, images, sounds and teaching/learning programs online. With a few exceptions, these digital teaching materials have been created specifically for (subject) teaching. For example, the images and sound are appropriate for the respective target and age groups, and the content is a perfect fit for the curricula and school syllabi. The use of media is a window to places of learning that cannot be reached or demonstrated in experiments, for example, because they are far away, dangerous, require a lot of time or are disproportionately expensive.
Media for pupils
Students can stream educational films, work online with a teaching/learning program, participate in a video conference. For this purpose, they receive individual access data to the media center's "Edupool" media library from their teachers.
Media for teachers
Teachers can not only stream but also download most of the educational films; in addition, numerous working materials (with solutions) are available for these didactic media. The digital teaching material can be integrated directly into schools' learning management systems and is thus available for students' individual learning. Teachers can compile media lists specifically for their learning groups and only this targeted selection is then visible to the group. Teachers can also access a worksheet generator online with numerous ready-made, but individually adaptable worksheets. To use this service, registration with the media center is required.
Video conferencing system
All teachers at schools in the district have had access to an intuitive video conferencing system since 2020. This not only allows "distance learning" to be carried out, but also parents' evenings and conferences. The applications mentioned are operating system-independent and do not require installation on the end devices of the learners or teachers. Only an up-to-date Internet browser is required.
Rental of robots and the like
Program-controlled machines make it possible to experience the process of digitization in practice. Small robots and tools for the production of a digital video are available for this purpose, among other things.
