AltspaceVRX-TALK: BYTE Challenge – The german digital education platform

8. September 2022 um 20:0021:30


BYTE Challenge – The german digital education platform
Speaker: Carolin Neumann (DevOps Consultant at IBM)

A third of eighth-graders can barely handle computers. Half of the schools have no Wi-Fi, and in a survey by WDR, the state of digitalisation at schools in Germany was given an average grade of 4.2 (1.0 is the best). Students‘ digital education is poor, although STEM subjects are economically crucial for Germany. Teachers cannot buffer all lack of action by the government. Therefore, the BYTE Challenge founders aim to inspire students to learn digital survival skills while collecting $Bits and $Bytes which can be traded for fabulous prizes. BYTE is the digital education platform to digitalise Digital Natives.

Don’t miss the After-show party in AltspaceVR with a live DJ-Set:
