Oliver Stickel: Making@Palestine

Through our long-term research project “come_IN”, we have established a world-wide network of computer clubs for children. Computer-based playful learning and collaborative projects are in the center of all come_IN clubs. Further important goals are integration and bridging the “digital divide”. Most of the clubs are located in Germany, however, two are in Palestinian refugee camps in the West Bank. Oliver Stickel and Dominik Hornung, two researchers from the University of Siegen, visited the Palestinian clubs in 2014. They brought a 3D printer and worked with the local children and volunteers on 3D modelling and 3D printing - always minding the come_IN philosophy of playfulness and beginner-friendlieness. In this talk, Oliver will present some of the experiences from Palestine as well as the impressive projects envisioned by the children who never before worked with 3D modelling, let alone 3D printing.

Simon Köhl: eine Wikipedia für die Bildung

In der Wikipedia, erschaffen Menschen gemeinsam Wissen und machen den freien Zugang zu Wissen selbstverständlich. In der Bildung ist diese Revolution noch nicht angekommen. Das wollen wir ändern: Mit bauen wir eine internationale Lernplattform, die allen kostenlos zugänglich ist und bei der alle mitmachen können. Unsere Vision ist freie Bildung, die durch eine offenen und unabhängige Gemeinschaft gestaltet wird.
