A tutoring system for individual practice in English as a foreign language
What is Didi and who is it though for?
Didi is an online tutoring system offering materials to support students learning English as a foreign language in the 7th grade of all school types (in Germany). It consists of a collection of learning exercises that enable students to receive individualized feedback during their independent learning time – where feedback is often lacking. Didi fosters the personal learning progress by enhancing the learning experience with pedagogically and motivationally oriented support.
What does Didi consist of?
Currently Didi contains a variety of exercises concerning tenses and other grammar topics in English. These are practiced with exercises at the text and sentence level based on the Baden-Württemberg educational curriculum. Starting in the school year 2020/2021, the sequencing of exercises will be based on an automatized process taking into individual skills and previous performance.
Can I use Didi?
As a teacher you can easily set up an account for yourself and then also for your students. For more information, see the flyer https://didi.schule/doc/flyer.pdf. You can access the materials via this website http://didi.schule.
How is Didi financed?
Although Didi is constantly being developed and improved, it is and it will remain free for you. Didi is to a large extent funded by the DigBindiff https://uni-tuebingen.de/en/169776 through the program “Wissenschaft-Praxis-Kooperationen für Unterrichtskonzepte mit digitalen Medien” from Robert Bosch Foundation.
