Already a partner for the past five GOW editions, Stiftung Digitale Chancen (SDC) is again the German National Partner for GOW17.

In this year´s GOW, the Stiftung Digitale Chancen will include again the 500+ German telecentres to cover a wide range of target groups, topics and activities. The telecentres in Germany cover many topics including courses for beginners, eServices, Online Safety and Security.

SDC will organize a webinar for educators to teach them about secure apps for children and which apps collect the most data from them. Furthermore SDC will be on the fair trade of the Day for Helping Children and Youth in Düsseldorf where we will promote the GOW to educators and stakeholders.

Like in the previous two years, the students from the TU Dortmund will play a big role in the GOW17. The students of the Faculty of Rehabilitation Science will offer free ICT courses for people with low ICT skills in Dortmund. Within a one-year course, 10 students are preparing more than 30 courses and will lecture and evaluate their activities. For their courses they are working together with more than 30 telecentres and other learning spaces in Dortmund. This year the students will deliver courses on topics like “Snapchat and Instagram” for people with disabilities, “Job finding on the web” for prison detainees or “Save apps for your children” for parents. For more information please click here or visit the students on their Facebook page.

All updates about activities will be published here in German:

Together with its partners, SDC will involve 3,500 people in the GOW17 activities in Germany.
