N3XTCODER Meetup - Future of Education

August 6th 2019 // 6:30pm at Spielfeld Digital Hub

What role will education play in the future? What skills are essential for the next decade? How do you imagine the future of digital and nondigital learning? Can digitisation of education create equal opportunities for all? 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. Out of several hundred applications, an independent jury selected 12 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.

At our N3XTCODER meetup you will have the opportunity to see 5 pitches from:

  • Bürgerakademie
  • Kinderchorland
  • Labosium
  • Lee
  • HackyDays

We encourage you to ask your questions, get involved and support the entrepreneurs we need for an open and equal society!

You can find more information about the digital.engagiert program here.
