Detailed Project description:

In 2020, the new project group consisting of 10 students of rehabilitation pedagogy will join the past years with newly designed courses. For the Contact Day, which took place on 05/12/2019, we developed initial outlines for the Get Online Week courses. We have already been able to make some contacts there. In the near future, we will continue to develop our concepts and plan visits to the facilities in order to optimally adapt the course content.

The target groups we want to reach with our courses are people with cognitive impairments, elementary school and lower school students, and refugees. From 23.-29.03.2020 we will develop content with the target groups for the courses described below.


Get Online Week 2020 Workshops:

  • Wifi in residential groups - opportunities and possibilities through the use of the Internet
  • #Watch out - Dangers on the Internet - We show you your Plan B!
  • Media in everyday life - risks of the smartphone
  • Media vocational preparation for refugees
