This competence describes the ability of teachers to design digital content in such a way that they are oriented towards the real experiences and interests of the SuS. This means designing digital learning materials and activities in such a way that they fit into the context and everyday life of the learners.

The focus of teaching on the life of the students is crucial to increasing their interest and motivation for learning. When digital learning content takes up topics from the everyday life of the learners, they are more inclined to deal with it and actively participate in the learning process, especially since the students can identify with it and connect to previous knowledge.
