 Media Didactics Meets Wearable Computing: The MediWeCo Project

Media Didactics Meets Wearable Computing: The MediWeCo Project

The Media Didactics Meets Wearable Computing (MediWeCo) project aims to develop novel and targeted teaching methods and learning concepts for occupations in which practical and motoric skills play a significant role. A novel mobile blended learning solution combines digital media with innovative wearable sensor-based feedback for teaching and learning of physiotherapeutic skills, and allows for examination of newly acquired skills. A learning application provides theoretical training on virtual patients using various eLearning approaches. Innovative wearable sensors allow for an assessment of manual performance of individual learners.

The European Social Fund in Germany wrote an article about our project.

m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1743217822355931&id=123884654289264Ausbildung 4.0: Physiotherapeuten müssen den menschlichen Körper bestens kennen. Für Krankengymnastik und Bewegungstherapie brauchen sie gute motorische Fähigkeiten und müssen komplexe Bewegungsabläufe durchführen können. 🖐 Das ESF-Projekt „MediWeCo“ unterstützt angehende Physiotherapeuten dabei: Mit digitalen Medien.

Die Auszubildenden tragen beim Erlernen von physiotherapeutischen Bewegungen Smart Wearables, Armbänder mit Sensoren. Sie erfassen Bewegungen und Muskelaktivitäten. Die dazugehörige Lernsoftware wertet diese Daten aus und gibt den angehenden Therapeuten ein individuelles Feedback dazu, wie korrekt sie die Bewegung ausgeführt haben. 💻

Bei der Visualisierung von physiotherapeutischen Bewegungsabläufen unterstützt „MediWeCo“ die Lernenden mit interaktiven Videos und Animationen. Dabei hilft auch die App PhysioLearn, die die Lerninhalte aufbereitet und praktische Übungen bietet. 📱

Das Projekt MediWeCo wird vom ESF im Programm „Digitale Medien in der beruflichen Bildung“ gefördert und von der RWTH Aachen University umgesetzt.
