How do you imagine your future? That is the central question here. Together with young teams from the organization “Jugend hackt” you will work on your future projects in various digital workshops and will give your generation a voice. You will learn storytelling with Instagram or practice coding future spaces in VR. You also discuss problems like fake news or the risks of using AI. And you can take an active part in the program by sharing your engagement in digital Ted Talks, panel discussions or social media stories.

Since the exchange is the focus, the language should not be a barrier, which is why main language will be English. The other participants also learn German and look forward to the opportunity to apply their knowledge in conversation with you. 
What exactly is the seminar for accompanying teachers?

All accompanying teachers will take part in a two-day seminar that provides new ideas for digital lesson design as well as thematic regional and cultural aspects and active exchange of experiences.

The seminar leader is Eva Spiesberger. Eva has been teaching and examining at the Goethe Institute in Melbourne since 2009. She teaches at all levels of the European frame of reference, corporate, adult, youth and online courses and holds professional development training courses and workshops for German teachers across Australia. She also supports and designs materials for international programs for German teachers and students at schools in Australia and abroad, e.g. at the Asian-Pacific German Olympics in Thailand and Indonesia.
