Field of Action – Digital Education
In the future, jobs may be located in the area of telecommuting, the so-called “Home Office” Especially here, there is great potential to further develop Köthen with the digitalisation project and thus compensate for the disadvantages of the location. This sub-project is intended to create an offer to improve digital and media competence. It is precisely here that an opportunity can be created to build up adult education in the area of citizenship.
Another point is the opportunity to promote the regional economy with further education offers and certification courses. In this context, cooperation activities with schools are to be intensified within the framework of existing cooperations. In consultation with the responsible authorities, training opportunities for teachers will also be created. The further education centre of the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences is involved in the project. Another important aspect is the development of an educational programme to increase the digital competence of pupils at the various schools in the city of Köthen (Anhalt).
