According to a study, Germany lags far behind in an international comparison when it comes to the digital equipment of schools and pupils and the corresponding training of teachers.

Germany still has a lot of catching up to do when it comes to digitization in schools. Corresponding figures from a special evaluation of the latest Pisa data from 2018 were presented by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which is responsible for the international comparison of school performance, on Tuesday. They are based on a survey of school principals that was carried out as part of the Pisa survey. According to the OECD, 223 school heads took part. There are around 30,000 general education schools in Germany.

The Programme for International Student Assessment ( PISA ) is a triennial survey of 15-year-old students around the world that assesses the extent to which they have acquired the key knowledge and skills essential for full participation in society.

In this letter to Dr Andreas Schleicher, director of the OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment , academics from around the world express deep concern about the impact of Pisa tests and call for a halt to the next round of testing.

At the time of the Pisa survey, only 33 percent of the students in Germany had access to an online learning platform; the OECD average was more than 54 percent. Germany ended up in the bottom group. In Singapore, some Chinese metropolises or Denmark, more than 90 percent of students had access to learning platforms as early as 2018. According to the study,

Germany was also below the OECD average in terms of the number of computers available to schoolchildren and also far behind in terms of digital further training for teachers. According to this, only around 40 percent of the students visited institutions in 2018 whose management was of the opinion that appropriate opportunities for teacher training were available. Here, too, schools in Asia, for example Singapore with 90 percent, were much better positioned according to their own assessment.

The OECD Programme for International Student Assessment ( PISA ) examines what students know in reading, mathematics and science, and what they can do with what they know. Germany - English, German . Italy - English, Italian. Japan - English, Japanese.

• PISA provides knowledge on individual, school and system-level factors that determine Admission and recruitment policies, tracking, course offerings/ school curriculum, evaluation Teacher- student School -level contexts and inputs (community size, resources, qualifications of teaching staff). •

In the school performance comparison Pisa, in addition to the compulsory tests in mathematics, reading and natural sciences, 15-year-olds also collect personal data and assessments from students, parents and school principals by means of a survey. These are used for special evaluations. Thus, between the actual Pisa results, which are only presented every three years, Pisa study results are repeatedly published.

Inequalities become visible

The crisis has brought to light the many inadequacies and inequalities in education systems around the world, said Andreas Schleicher, OECD Education Director. Disadvantaged young people are particularly hard hit. "Every country should work harder to ensure that all schools have the necessary resources so that every student has the same learning and success opportunities."

The education policy spokesman for the FDP parliamentary group, Thomas Sattelberger, mentioned the OECD figures in the field of digital training for teachers, an "overly loud wake-up call". Other countries also integrated digital devices and learning software into their lessons much earlier. “Germany is only starting now, in the middle of the crisis and much too timidly.” The spokeswoman for education policy of the Green parliamentary group, Margit Stumpp, said that Germany must finally get out of the lagging behind in education policy and get on the offensive. She called for “unbureaucratic and fast” basic digital equipment, including broadband, WLAN, end devices and professional administration.

The OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment ( PISA ) surveys, which take place every three years, have been designed to collect information about 15-year-old students in participating countries. Data from the principals of participating schools are also included.

“In view of today's testimony from the OECD about the very poor equipment and the requirements for distance teaching and learning, one can only be happy and grateful for everything that the teachers, their students and their parents have made possible in the acute corona crisis “, said Susanne Lin-Klitzing, the chairwoman of the German Association of Philologists, which represents the grammar school teachers. Among other things, she called for more training opportunities and sufficient time off for teachers to be able to participate. dpa
