Utilisation of tablet PCs now in the practical training of welders as well

In January 2015, GSI started a pilot project in which it is utilising tablet PCs in the theoretical teaching at its Niederlassung Bildungszentren Rhein-Ruhr at the location in Gelsenkirchen. The following objectives are being pursued with this project:


•             Up-to-date preparation of participants for the specialist qualification tests

•             Motivation to learn by utilising modern media

•             Promotion of cooperative learning

•             Improvement in the performances of the participants

With this utilisation of modern learning media, GSI would like to make, above all, young people enthusiastic about welding technology. An evaluation of the pilot project and an extension to other locations are expected in the middle of the year.
