Technologiestiftung Berlin
Digital tools and smart solutions can make living together in the city more open, liveable and sustainable. That is why the Technology Foundation is committed to the digital transformation in administration, education, culture and business – in a way that is oriented towards the common good and transparent.
Digitalisation is changing our lives – privately and at work. Anyone who wants to participate successfully in life must be able to deal confidently with the information and services available on the Internet. This requires a basic digital understanding. Schools are only slowly opening up to the new formats and contents. In Berlin, however, there are already many extracurricular initiatives for digital education and interesting learning opportunities. Our EduTechMap Berlin is intended to help provide educational institutions with an overview of offers for digital projects. This should make it easier for educational institutions to really make good use of the possibilities of digitalisation.
