What are the advantages of the OPITEC PLUS LINE for teachers?
The OPITEC PLUS LINE facilitates teaching preparation - considering the different learning levels of the children. The teacher can rely on a variety of tasks in the workmap! Due to the individual tasks, all pupils achieve success. With highly motivated children, further tasks can be tackled.

What are the advantages of the OPITEC PLUS LINE for the students?
Playful learning encourages creativity and awakens the developer! With the PLUS line products the children can choose the difficulty of the tasks according to their learning level - adapted to the respective learning level and the interests of the children.

On the worksheets the children find different assignments. They record their assumptions and observations. They consider how, for example, electricity is produced. The worksheets leave enough space for their own experiments beyond the making of the model.

The PLUSLINE therefore supports competence-oriented learning, which promises success for every child. Success is the best motivator to keep the children interested and enthusiastic with the task!

How do the OPITEC PLUS LINE products correspond to the curriculum?
Teaching success is measured by the competences that pupils have acquired. Technological education builds competences through recurring processes: design / planning - sketching / creating hypotheses - execution / testing - observing / describing effects - improving / optimizing.

The OPITEC PLUS LINE kits are designed for competency-oriented instruction, have a direct curriculum reference and support the implementation of the new curriculum PLUS for subject and faculty teaching.

The pupils use their craft skills to build models, with which they in turn research contents or connections. They use problem-solving strategies by means of a process:

1st phase: PLANNING
Developing ideas / solutions
("It could go!")

2nd phase: BUILDING / CONSTRUCTING
Finishing a model
("How to go step by step ...")

3rd phase: OBSERVE / DESCRIBE
Knowledge is acquired through review, change, optimization
("What happens if I ...")

4. PHASE: DOCUMENT / REFLECT
Knowledge is solidified through presentation
("Why is that ?")

Teaching and technical teaching and teaching work hand in hand. They train methods and acquire linked knowledge. In addition to motor skills, the children also develop linguistic, aesthetic and social skills.
