Product description

The web platform "Wandel vernetzt denken" ("Approaching Change Through Networked Thinking") offers a complete theme with teaching material on networked thinking. There are a total of 19 teaching modules in German available to download free of charge. The team behind "Wandel vernetzt denken" supplements this theme with teaching modules on current issues. The first of these modules is centred around the key question: Are electric vehicles environmentally friendly?

Electric vehicles are generally considered environmentally friendly, in contrast to conventional cars. The auto industry, electricity suppliers and many politicians point out that fully electrically powered vehicles are zero- or low-emission and could contribute to climate protection. At the same time, these vehicles are expected to solve other challenges of private transport.

But are electric vehicles really environmentally friendly? The module allows students to take a holistic approach to this question — including comparisons with conventional cars. With the help of questions and materials, they research and reflect on connections. In this way, students not only develop a well-founded opinion on the complex topic of e-mobility — a current issue necessitating societal decisions that will create structures with long-lasting consequences. More importantly, this example gives them the opportunity to practice networked thinking on a fundamental level.

The interdisciplinary teaching materials can be introduced into social studies, politics, economics, geography, ethics and science, for example. The target groups are students in year 9 or higher (upper secondary school).

"Wandel vernetzt denken" is a privately sustained and funded initiative. It offers independent content centred around the common good. The teaching modules are developed, compiled and tested by teams of educators and specialist writers.
