As part of the project "Educational standards in vocational schools" the responsible Federal Ministry compiled competence models, descriptors and didactic examples for Informatics in technical high schools (HTL). The imple-mentation of this project implies a paradigm shift for the vocational school sys-tem, which requires a new pedagogic foundation. This paper presents a didacti-cal concept, that meets the requirements of the educational standards in general and competence orientation in particular. A proposal for the implementation of these educational standards in the competence area industrial information tech-nology (INIT) is presented. The specification is based on selected teaching ses-sions for micro controller technique. Learner-oriented teaching methods are ap-plied, along with procedures to promote the learners´ intrinsic motivation and creativity in general. It became apparent that the competence area INIT conveys remarkably demanding learning outcomes and its implementation proved chal-lenging on multiple levels.
