SMK: 24 schools receive “Digital School Saxony” award

March 10, 2024. 24 Saxon schools will be awarded the title “Digital School Saxony” on March 13, 2024 in the East Saxony region and on March 15, 2024 in the West Saxony region. These schools provide a contemporary education in a digital world and actively drive this development forward. They offer robotics clubs, practise programming, develop useful school apps, integrate a digital learning culture, establish contacts with external companies or universities and continue their education. The award will be presented at the 3rd event of the school network. Silicon Saxony welcomes the initiative for contemporary education and the commitment of the schools to actively promote this. In cooperation with the Saxon Youth Education Association, Saxony’s high-tech network is also involved in the “Programming with Calliope Mini” project as part of the initiative.

As part of the “Digital School Saxony” initiative, the Saxon State Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs is funding a Saxony-wide school network to strengthen computer and media education. The main aim of the initiative is to prepare young people at an early stage for the challenges of an increasingly digitalized working and living environment. Schools that are particularly committed to computer science, computer science-related disciplines and digitalization can apply for this title. The new application round will start in April 2024.

The 24 network schools will receive support in the implementation of individual objectives through exchanges with other schools and the involvement of external stakeholders such as regional companies, universities and research institutions. The aim is to create new learning spaces for pupils in order to arouse a broader interest in computer science and relieve the burden on teachers when designing lessons.
