The public plenary sessions of the Parliament are very well-known from the media. But what happens behind the scenes? How does our democracy, our parliamentarianism work? What are the possibilities for co-determination and participation for the citizens of Austria? How are laws created? What is the day-to-day work in the Parliament like?
Pupils and teachers will find answers to these and many other questions in the elaborately animated DVD "The Austrian Parliament" with which it is possible for the first time to move virtually and intuitively from room to room and in the process call up entertainingly prepared info on the centerpiece of our democracy.
The content of the DVD includes, among others,
Particularly the interactive structure of the menu guidance ensures that knowledge is conveyed in an exciting way: The information about the individual thematic area is summarized in more than 50 brief video clips, each lasting two minutes. The clips can be called up to match the spatial context during the virtual tour and also in a chronological order via a "schedule" of the Parliament.
This innovative structure makes it possible for teaching staff to ideally prepare their teaching and to call up the required information in a target-oriented manner - and makes it possible for pupils to discover the Austrian parliament interactively with a high fun factor.
