Based on the insights we gained from the interviews and the user research, we developed a concept which should solve some of the issues teachers have during their lectures. First of all, the interaction and communication between the teacher and the pupils should be improved by the new system, as well as the individual participation of the pupils. Additionally, the system should facilitate the usage of varying teaching methods in order to keep the pupils motivated and interested.
The idea that evolved from these problems and insights is a system which provides a dynamic and flexible script. It enables the teacher to prepare a script for each class in advance and project it onto the wall, while he can make changes and adapt it in real time during the lecture by using a tablet. In order to reach the full potential of the dynamic script and to be able to use all the different functionalities, every pupil should have his or her own tablet. This way, it is possible for them to ask anonymous questions by annotating the interactive script which is being synchronized with and shown on their own tablets and on the projector. As a result of the anonymization, the pupils can ask questions that they wouldn’t dare to ask in person and the teacher can react immediately. Another feature is the integration of external media, such as visualizations or graphical animations in real time, which can be very helpful for explaining difficult topics or demonstrating some things more clearly, and the teacher can also set up spontaneous votings and quizzes for the whole class, which provides instant feedback for the teacher and entertainment for the pupils.
