Dr. Florian Sochatzy ran the masterclass “Digital Learning Design” during the 2016 Jumpstart conferences in New Delhi and Bangalore.

My first impression of India…
fascinating, friendly, hot, chaotic, amiable

Things in New Delhi that remind me of my home town Eichstätt…
not much sadly

Something that caught my attention in India (and that is rather unusual in Germany)…
Polarity of two extremes at one place

A memory of India that will stay…
the Indians’ affinity for digitalised future

Dr. Florian Sochatzy studied history and English language and literature at the University of Eichstaett-Ingolstadt. During this time he founded his first company, the film production enterprise ‘Lichtpunkt-Film’. Since 2008 he has been working as an academic for theory and didactics of history. Since then, his main research interests are multimedia textbooks and the effects and requirements of digital learning. Since 2011 he has been managing director of the Institute for digital Learning.
Two of their projects have been honoured with two prestigious awards - the award “Schoolbook of the year 2016” and the “German eBook Award 2015”. In 2016 Florian Sochatzy completed his doctoral thesis entitled ‘The multimedia textbook - from theory into practice: design, production and empirical testing of a multimedia history textbook’.
