Abstract Title: Competence-based Physics Teaching
Abstract: The shortage of human resources in the fields of technology and science has now become one of the main obstacles to the economic development. Due to the low number of Physics lessons and the declining popularity of science subjects, choosing appropriate teaching methods can be a serious challenge for teachers. In the Physics education, a change of attitude towards innovative teaching methods is necessary in order to be effective even under the changed conditions and provide students with the same quality of education. In order to enhance the popularity of Physics among students, the application of techniques and methods considered successful in other fields can be a good solution by promoting an internationally successful approach in the Physics education. The process of educational development requires the use of new ideas when applying traditional activities, and the development and testing new methods and tasks. Competence-based Physics education provides an opportunity for students to acquire the expected knowledge according to specific requirements. The requirement system helps teachers to plan lessons by taking into account specific competences that they would like to develop with the chosen activities. The inquiry-based method can effectively contribute to students' competence development and it supports Physics lessons, too. The method encourages students to take part actively in their learning process and acquire knowledge by observing, describing and understanding different phenomena. Teachers monitor the learning process by providing a logically-structured way for students to reach the appropriate level while developing skills. In our study, we present an Arduino-based opportunity for student experimentation and investigate its role in competence development and the acquisition of necessary knowledge. With the methodological description of the tasks we have developed, we would like to support colleagues in choosing successful teaching methods.
