Activities of the PHBern in BeLEARN


The PHBern's involvement in BeLEARN is broad-based. As one of the five founding universities, PHBern is intensively involved in shaping BeLEARN. In this context, the research program "Education and Digital Technologies" and the PHBern-internal project funding "BeLEARN" were launched at PHBern. In addition, the Digital Transformation Network has expanded its scope of work.

Research Programme "Education and Digital Technologies"

Digital technologies can both support and hinder learning. In this research programme, research is being conducted into how digital technologies can be used to promote learning. In direct cooperation with teachers and students, learning in virtual environments is examined in particular.

  • GrafMilis
    In the GrafMilis project, connections between various aspects of handwriting, graphomotor skills and spelling are explored. Special attention is paid to the analogue and digital recording of graphomotor difficulties. In addition, existing games for promoting handwriting on the iPad will be tested, further developed and integrated into a guideline that combines analogue and digital forms of learning.
