Since 2009 the schools of the state of Thuringia follow a Media Competence curriculum, which aims at developing education with and about media in the double school classes 5/6, 7/8 and 9/10. The first evaluation of this proposal happened right at the beginning of its implementation in 2010, investigating the first impressions of the teachers who were responsible for coordinating the Media Competence curriculum in their respective schools. At the meantime, the concept has been implemented in schools, and certainly deficits as well as successful experiences have been collected. Therefore, the Ministry for Education, Youth and Sport of Thuringia selected the University of Technology Ilmenau, more specifically the research group of Empirical Research and Political Communication, to conduct a thorough evaluation of the establishment of the Media Competence curriculum so far. From September 2016 until December 2017, deficits and best practices will be collected and analyzed, through interviews with experts, surveys with teachers, and case studies with schools. The project will be managed by Professor Jens Wolling and Priscila Berger.
