2018: ALL DIGITAL Week is for everybody!

Already a partner for the past six editions, Stiftung Digitale Chancen (SDC) was again the German National Partner for ALL DIGITAL Week 2018. SDC led the campaign with the support from students of the Scientific Institute of the Technical University of Dortmund.

With the tagline “The ALL DIGITAL Week is for everybody” SDC strove for all people in Germany to be part of the digital world and to acquire the skills to use the Internet to their advantage. In order to reach these people, SDC followed the train-the-trainer approach and qualified volunteers, staff and freelancers to become multipliers who empowered senior citizens in using digital media.

SDC is happy that so many organizations like libraries, Internet initiatives, computer clubs and a State Media Authority followed their call and joined the All Digital Week 2018 with more than 70 events all over Germany. Some of the examples include: “Code+Design FeMales Camp 2018” – a coding workshop for women in Düsseldorf, “Computer time” in Hamburg, “Augmented Reality” in Saarbrucken.

In Dortmund, the students developed, organised, and implemented courses with various topics (e.g. using eBooks and touchscreens) for locals from all backgrounds, educations, and ages.

SDC is very proud of the success of the newly designed and implemented ALL DIGITAL Week. More organisations responded to the call for events than in previous years.

Together with its 21 partners, SDC involved 800 people in the ALL DIGITAL Week activities in Germany.

All updates about activities were published here in German:

tu_ebene2wortmarke_enSozialforschungsstelle Dortmund Central (Scientific Institute of the Technische Universität Dortmund) will help to boost ALL DIGITAL Week 2018 activities in the region and will partner with Stiftung Digitale Chancen. A group of students, studying BA in rehabilitation science at University of Dortmund, will organise events in Dortmund as an “applied” studying scheme.

The students of the Faculty of Rehabilitation Science will offer free ICT courses for people with low ICT skills in Dortmund. Within a one-year course, ten students are preparing more than 30 courses and will lecture and evaluate their activities. For their courses they are working together with more than 30 telecentres and other learning spaces in Dortmund. This year the students will deliver courses on topics like “Snapchat and Instagram” for people with disabilities, “Job finding on the web” for prison detainees or “Save apps for your children” for parents.
