Symposium „Digital Learning in School Education: Perspectives from Japan, France, and Germany“

The trilateral symposium is the third event of the "French-German Dialogue on Japan", a cooperation between JDZB and FFJ/EHESS. In addition to the trilateral orientation, this series of dialogues deals in particular with topics that bring together technological and social aspects. This year - also under the impression of the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic - aspects of digital learning in schools in the three countries are in focus.

Digital Learning

Despite given deficiencies and substantial backlogs in many areas, the digital transformation of learning in educational facilities on all levels is unstoppable. It will have a fundamental impact on the transfer of knowledge and on the meaning of education itself.  Next to considerable technical challenges, the digitization of learning will also imply social effects. Policy makers and experts in the field of education are in charge of designing, organizing and implementing the change.

This international symposium will bring together perspectives on digital learning in school education from three countries, namely Japan, France, and Germany, in the following three areas: the academic perspective, the policy maker perspective on governmental strategies and the "classroom" perspective.
