At Digitalwerkstatt we teach kids more than ones and zeros. In addition to technical skills they acquire important meta competences through programming and cooperating with other children.
We support children to actively face challenges and solve exercises independently. At Digitalwerkstatt they learn to develop solution strategies for real problems and experience themselves as capable of acting as well as self-competent.
We encourage children to try out new things and not be afraid of failing. At Digitalwerkstatt they learn that mistakes are resources which can be the foundation for innovations.
We support children to not give up immediately when coping with lack of understanding and frustration. At Digitalwerkstatt they learn to overcome hurdles with a smart mind as well as ease.
We accompany and actively support children in their development and in the realisation of their own creative ideas. At Digitalwerkstatt they explore new tools and techniques in a playful way and learn to use them for the implementation of their own projects.
At Digitalwerkstatt children learn to contribute to the team by bringing in their own skills, discussing their own ideas and tasks with others and being willing to compromise. They experience how enriching it can be to complement one another and to achieve goals in teamwork.
It is our aim to create a space in which children (and adults) can meet each other with openness and appreciation. At Digitalwerkstatt we encourage children to actively support and share their knowledge with each other.
While programming it is important to divide complex processes into clear work steps and formulate precise orders which the computer is able to understand. At Digitalwerkstatt children learn this in a playful, digital and analog way while using tools and techniques that are suitable for their age.
At Digitalwerkstatt children are empowered to use digital tools consciously and responsibly. This is an important requirement in order to participate in an increasingly digital world and be able to actively shape it.
