Professional learning communities for preschool teachers to support their ability to use diagnostic information for instructional decisions
Funded by BMBF (Förderrichtlinie: „Förderbezogene Diagnostik in der inklusiven Bildung“) (FKZ: 01NV2110C)
ProfinK aims to support preschool teachers in implementing science- and environmental education in preschool for children with different learning requirements with regard to their science knowledge, language and self-regulation abilities. The focus lays on the use of diagnostic information to improve individual learning processes. This is a challenging process for preschool teachers. In the project, preschool teachers work together in professional learning communities on these topics. Thereby, they use and further develop an e-portfolio to assess and document the children's developments. Based on this diagnostic information preschool teachers derive instructional decisions to foster the children adaptively.
