Digital Learning in School Education
Perspectives from Japan, France, and Germany
Despite given deficiencies and substantial backlogs in many areas, the digital transformation of learning in educational facilities on all levels is unstoppable. It will have a fundamental impact on the transfer of knowledge and on the meaning of education itself. Next to considerable technical challenges, the digitization of learning will also imply social effects. Policy makers and experts in the field of education are in charge of designing, organizing and implementing the change. The work of school directors and teachers will be significantly affected, and, of course and most of all, the pupils themselves with their individual approaches to learning. The future of our societies is at stake.
This international symposium will bring together perspectives on digital learning in school education from three countries, namely Japan, France, and Germany, in the following three areas:
- The academic perspective: Assessing benefits and disadvantages of, in particular, social aspects of digital learning (Panel)
- The policy maker perspective on governmental strategies: How is the digital transformation of learning and school education on all levels currently being organized and what will be developments in the near future (Roundtable)
- The "classroom" perspective: Experiences and concerns in practically applying tools of digital learning (Roundtable)
As the third edition of the "French-German Dialogue on Japan", this symposium is jointly organized by the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB) and the France-Japan Foundation of the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), Paris. Conference language is English.
