Development of a Didactic Concept for Modern 3D Geometry Teaching Materials

Research project in the area of Virtual and Augmented Reality.

Keywords: Geometry Education, teaching materials, Spatial Abilities.

About this Project

In GEODIKON we work on a didactic and methodic design of modern 3D geometry teaching material, especially for mathematics courses and "Linear Drawing"/"Geometrisches Zeichnen" courses.  The aim is to design teaching material in a way to optimally and individually support the development of spatial, mathematic-logic and geometric skills and to enhance students' spatial abilities. In addition we want to reduce gender effects in geometry education.

„GEODIKON“ (Geometrie – Didaktik – Konzept) is sponsered by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture.
