MatchED? Discuss Inspirational Solutions with Today’s Learners
Date Thursday, Dec 7 Time –
High school students are concerned about global economic, political, social and environmental problems. They are taking responsibility for the pressing challenges of today and tomorrow and making their voices heard. In this session, you will hear their ideas and are invited to join an inspiring intergenerational dialogue on “Skills for the New Digital Age” with ambassadors of the YES! - Young Economic Summit. Let’s enter into a conversation with today’s learners, looking at the future of education.
Sarah Zühlke, Pauline Karstens, Emma Karstens, Chantal Pasternack and Shante Pasternack are students at the Richard-Hallmann-School in Trappenkamp and are visting the socio-scientific and economic profiles in the 12th grade.
Together they decided to join the national school-competition "Young Economic Summit" (shortly YES!). This competition opens doors and sets a stage for new and creative ideas of the next generation. High School students concern themselves with global problems in the realm of economy, policy, society and environment. They aim to find innovative solutions in order to create the world, the youth wants to live in.
In this context the students from the Richard-Hallmann-School dealed with the topic "skills for the new digital age" and developed their idea of a web-based platform under the name "matchED"- Matching Education and Digitalization. MatchED combines a web-based learning module for students with detailed qualification profiles of employers. In that way, the lack of digital competences can be decreased as graduates can gain qualification matching their aspired career.
