Abstract

Education for the so-called "digital world" is becoming more and
more important these days and is given particular attention in
school education. In this area, interdisciplinary educational fields,
such as data literacy, have developed. However, on the one hand
little is known about the interests of students in such educational
topics and in the digital world itself but on the other hand interest
is an important factor during the learning process. Therefore, in
this poster abstract the literature-based development of an interest
model for data literacy and a questionnaire based on this model
are described with the aim to investigate students’ interests in this
field.
