Teaching material “Big Data”: successfully launched

The teaching material of NRP 75 and the Museum of Communication has been downloaded over 4500 times since January.

How do Internet giants earn their money? What does free of cost mean in the online world? How can data save the world? The Lehrplan 21, the new curricula in the German speaking cantons of Switzerland, contains the new subject "Media and Computer Science" in which the pupils are to acquire skills in data, among other things.

Suitable teaching materials for the secondary level (Sek I and II) are therefore needed in order to teach these competences. This is where the teaching material “Big Data” comes in – with success.

Since the launch in January, the teaching material has been downloaded diligently. In German, this has been the case between 1100 and 1700 times for the individual parts of the teaching material, in French on average 150 times.

The teaching material “Big Data” takes an innovative and playful approach and has a modular structure. Modules can be omitted, depending on the time budget and the depth of the course. With the teaching material, data becomes “tangible” connected to the young people’s everyday lives. The examples are practical and real.
