N3XTCODER Digital Engagiert 2019

What role will education play in the future?

How do you imagine the future of digital and nondigital learning?

What skills are essential for the next decade?

How does the education system need to evolve to live up to today's and the future's requirements?

We teamed up with a digital.engagiert - funding initiative of Amazon and Stifterverband to reimagine education. Out of several hundred applications, an independent jury selected 12 innovative projects that can digitally complement existing educational formats and offerings, or completely rethink them - that tomorrow's generation can acquire the necessary skills for the future.

This website is designed to give you insights about the projects and to encourage you to get involved and support the entrepreneurs we need for an open and equal society!
