Bring­ing dig­i­tal­iza­tion into schools

Media packages of the iRights.Lab on behalf of the Siemens Foundation on the digital topics "artificial intelligence", "big data" and "algorithms"

Bringing digitalization into schools: With this mission, we at the iRights.Lab got to work and put together three exciting media packages on important digital topics for the media portal of the Siemens Foundation. With these packages, we want to support teachers in communicating digital topics in an age-appropriate way that is close to the world we live in, especially in times of home schooling.

Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence, Big Data and Algo­rithms: The three topic pack­ages, which form a good basis for teach­ing dig­i­tal com­pe­tence to school­child­ren, can be down­loaded as self-con­tained media pack­ages from the media por­tal of the Siemens Foundation. 

The pack­ages are divid­ed into three parts. The first part explains the nec­es­sary basics, the sec­ond part presents prac­ti­cal exam­ples, and the last part dis­cuss­es oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges for soci­ety. The fac­tu­al con­tent is con­veyed in a cross-media for­mat using fac­tu­al texts, audio inter­views, films, illus­tra­tions and infographics. 

The media pack­ages con­tain a ped­a­gog­i­cal guide, an exten­sive list of links for fur­ther in-depth study, as well as task and solu­tion sheets.

The two pack­ages “Big Data” and “Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence” are already avail­able, the third pack­age on algo­rithms will fol­low shortly. 

As Open Edu­ca­tion­al Resources, the pack­ages can be down­loaded free of charge from the Media Por­tal of the Siemens Stiftung and are avail­able under the Cre­ative Com­mons License CC BY-SA 4.0, which means that the pack­age con­tents may be mod­i­fied (e.g., new texts or graph­ics may be insert­ed into a work­sheet), dis­trib­uted world­wide (includ­ing the mod­i­fied medi­um) or reassem­bled (e.g., two graph­ics from the Media Por­tal may be com­bined). The only pre­req­ui­site is that the name of the author(s) is given, any changes are indi­cat­ed and the medi­um is dis­trib­uted under the same con­di­tions and the licence is stated.
