08: The Acceptance of Technologies by Pupils with Migration History – a Plea for Transcultural Competence as new Enlightenment

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

If digitisation and Internet technologies are the drivers of future working environments, schools have to take over a new task: young people with immigrant backgrounds are often not as technology-savvy as required by workplaces in Western societies. Schools generally have a hard time to convey “digital skills” in a comprehensive way. If the individual competence towards the learning process aggravates this, digital competence and familiarity with Western living and working worlds are even less easily accessible. Is this a proven fact – or just promoting prejudices? Will a modern interpretation of a new Enlightenment including social values, especially concerning the gender question, be helpful?
