The aim of this thesis called “Use of weather and climate data in geography and economics lessons taking the example of the WegenerNet climate station network” is to investigate and demonstrate possibilities of using meteorological-climatological data for teaching purposes in order to raise the students awareness and create a better understanding. Results show that the application of measured data in classroom instruction is sensible for several reasons, such as showing developments and draw comparisons, to critically question statistical evaluation or processing data and carrying out analyses.The WegenerNet climate station networks Feldbachregion and Johnsbachtal provide high spatial and temporal resolution measurements. The collected data are processed by an automatic Processing System. For application purposes the resulting data and further information on the station network are available for users at the WegenerNet data portal (www.wegenernet.org). The access and download functionalities allow the user to prepare different topics using figures and diagrams. The two focus regions of the WegenerNet differ substantially from each other with regard to the physiographical and climatological characteristics, which in turn facilitates the investigation of common and differing features of the particular regions. In addition, the two focus regions reflect the typical characteristics of the Alpine region or Alpine foreland and allow an exemplary demonstration of facts.After a thorough analysis of the curriculum, several possibilities of using the WegenerNet for teaching purposes are outlined, corresponding to the general part of the curriculum dealing with educational objectives and didactic concepts as well as particular teaching subjects. The present thesis focus is on the subject of „Geographie und Wirtschaftskunde“ (Geography and Economics, abbr. „GW“) with linkages to the curriculum from 1st to 8th grade. In addition, some interdisciplinary approaches are investigated and then presented in detail. The results drawn from a case study in the 5th grade (GW) reveal not only the students willingness to work with meteorological-climatological data, but a positive feedback in view of a better understanding and readiness for future use in further subjects. Along with the use of measured data over a longer period of time (e.g. during a project week), the interdisciplinary approach may be the basis for a continuation of this work.
