Education in the digital age

Lego Level Up 2

How does digitalization change our lives? How will we learn in kindergartens and schools in the future? How will the world of work develop? How can we ensure everyone's participation in society? On the Education Day on Saturday, 14 September 2019, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., visitors will be able to find out about current developments and the significance of digitization for lifelong learning. 

More than 80 offers from different institutions are combined in an educational course: On the market square, in the town hall and in the Alte Kämmerei as well as in several institutions in the city area, there will be exchange, information and advice on the subject of education in the digital age.

On the market place

11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Visit our ADA team at the info booth on the market place. The Akademie Der Avantgarde is our project for art and digital education. With the new ADA On Tour format, the ADA team will come to institutions for workshops on digital topics. Among other things, we present one of our new workshops on micro energy harvesting.

Workshop: Micro Energy Harvesting
Finding, measuring and collecting energy

Energy can be tracked down and even harvested. This is possible with sun, wind, friction and heat, but also with electronic transmission signals such as W-Lan and mobile phone radiation. Small amounts of energy from the environment are stored and converted into usable electrical energy. Concentrate on the topic of energy consumption, energy is actually everywhere. We use a measuring device to search for it, collect it and explore at what is possible with it. 

At the NRW-Forum

11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
