Festival of Learning – Day 2

During the second day of the festival, we want to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the German education system in the digital age. With technological progress, our expectations are also growing. Many things will have to change in our understanding of education in the coming years if we don't want to completely lose touch. What would happen if we simply pushed the boundaries and entered new spaces?

Together with graduate students from MIT, professionals from libraries and maker spaces as well as pedagogical staff, we want to highlight best-practice examples, provide new impulses and present innovative ideas.
