For a research project at the Chair of Formal and Informal Learning at the Technical University of Munich, we design and implement an app for a study in the Munich Traffic Center. By using the app, research data can be collected in a targeted manner and prepared for statistical evaluation in a user-friendly way.

Case Study at the Munich Verkehrszentrum

During their visit to the exhibition at the Munich Verkehrszentrum, schoolchildren receive different types of learning prompts about selected exhibits – so-called “instructional prompts” – via an app. These “prompts” are automated text messages that are intended to activate the young museum visitors with different learning impulses.

The aim of the project is to compare different prompts to investigate how students can be encouraged to engage more intensively and actively with the exhibits during self-directed learning in a science and technology museum.
