According to the will of the state government, teachers and pupils will be able to use the digital education platform "Schule@BW" from next year. The portal will be rolled out to schools from the beginning of 2024, said the responsible state secretary in the Ministry of Education, Sandra Boser (Greens), on Tuesday in Stuttgart. The platform brings together learning management systems such as Moodle or Itslearning, the messenger service Threema and a digital workplace for teachers.
Stuttgart - The use is voluntary for the schools.
According to Boser, all modules of the platform are already usable, with the exception of the digital workplace. When the platform is rolled out, the digital workplace for teachers will also be integrated. Among other things, teachers will be able to access a nationwide uniform e-mail address. "We are in the process of finalizing the contract arrangements," Boser said.
The creation of a digital education platform has been dragging on for many years. In 2015, the green-red state government had decided to provide a digital platform called "ella". Shortly before the launch in February 2018, the introduction was first postponed due to serious technical deficiencies and later stopped completely.
The new platform is part of a strategy with which the state wants to digitize schools. In addition, school administrators and teachers are to learn more digital skills in further training courses and the topic is to be given greater prominence in educational curricula. As an example, Boser cited a project in which children are introduced to robotics in a playful way as early as elementary school. Dpa
