6. Digitalisation of the classroom – age-appropriate digital curricula

Moderator: Georg Juergens, Managing Director ECSWE

What competences are needed in our increasingly digital world and what does the presence of digital technology in schools mean for teaching? This workshop will analyse the age from which we should deal specifically and consciously with digital media, how they can be used meaningfully and creatively in classrooms, and the skills that are important in the use of media and when the basis for them is laid.
