Zeit-Konferenz and German Telekom Foundation about 'Digitalization in Schools in Germany'
The 'Die Zeit' and the 'Deutsche Telekom Stiftung' invited me as expert in the field of tablets on schools in Scandinavia. The conference was on 19 Nov 2015 in Berlin. The focus of the conference was how to support and design teaching and learning in the digital age. Instead of asking, 'if' schools face a digital challenge and 'if' they should act, the main message was that schools have the responsibility on 'how to design' teaching and learning in German schools. In the afternoon, there was an International session with contributions from Switzerland, Netherlands and Sweden/Denmark (my contribution from Swedish and Danish views).
It was a very active conference, more than 450 participants, very nice discussions, sometimes a lot of controversies. Twitter hashtag #zksb15
