Digital School Partnership

Added pedagogical value through digital education?

In the past, we have repeatedly reported on our participation in the digitization award “Zukunft. School. Digital.” award from the fischer group of companies. Now, the project has developed into a unique school partnership over three years with the 2020 winner – Otto Hahn High School in Nagold. Together, future-oriented model projects are being created in which students of all grades are also prepared for the digital transformation in the professional and working world. Prof. Klaus Fischer supports the many joint activities and thus the Otto Hahn Gymnasium in the period from 2021 – 2024 with a total of 60,000 euros, which creates an enormous potential for development and realization. “Today’s students are the future economic actors of our country. We need to share our knowledge with future generations and promote innovative ideas in order to remain competitive in the future with rapid developments in the field of digitalization as a society and in companies,” emphasizes Prof. Fischer. Numerous joint projects are already being planned and implemented. A core team with representatives of the fischer group of companies and gannaca, as well as with the school principal and responsible teachers*, has already defined the first milestones of the model project. The centerpiece of the joint “Digital Partner School” project is the establishment of a “Digital House” where all topics, workshops and joint work take place. The focus is on digitization, but also on artificial intelligence, sustainability and internationalization. The thematic focus is to be on the transformation of the professional and working world in the digital modern age.

applied methods:

  • The Applied Vision Transformation
    TAVT is a coaching method designed by Christopher Peterka for the systematic recording and activation of ideas with the aim of their valorisation.
  • Futures Thinking
    Futures Thinking offers ways of addressing, even helping to shape, the future; but it is not about gazing into a crystal ball. It illuminates how policy, strategy, and action can promote desirable futures and help prevent those we consider undesirable. It stimulates strategic dialogue, widens our understanding of the possible, strengthens leadership, and informs decision-making.

    Futures Thinking is a method for informed reflection on the major changes that will occur in the next 10, 20, or more years in all areas of social life, including education. Futures Thinking uses a multidisciplinary approach to pierce the veil of received opinion and identify the dynamics creating the future.

    While the future cannot be reliably predicted, we can foresee a range of possible futures and ask which are the most desirable for particular groups and societies. A variety of methods – qualitative, quantitative, normative, and exploratory – help to illuminate the possibilities, outline policy choices, and assess the alternatives.
  • Radical Openness
    How people connect and collaborate is transforming. By shunning old, secretive practices and embracing transparency, smart organisations share intellectual property within themselves and the community. Through this practice they gain speed and interaction productivity that reconnects them to the pace of change happening around them.

applied services:

  • Moderation
    You produce a conference, trade exhibition, panel, or show to foster your business and need a serious, well reputed moderator? We’re here to support you with our carefully selected team of moderators from subtle, elegant and smart journalists to straight-forward, canny business guys. Please drop us a line to express your interest here.    
  • Match Making
    We've been running our business for more than 15 years. Since the first day, we've placed special emphasis on our network of high potential thought leaders, change makers, and multiplicators. Once you've comprehensibly explained your specific interest to us, there's a high likelihood that we have some very capable human beings for you who you should get to know to foster your interest. We do this based on trust and high moral standards, so you might hear us answer “no” as well if we feel we shouldn't act. But please: try us. The people we like to match with you typically are of the following kind (globally): - Innovation Thought Leaders - Change Makers - Strategic Investors - Substantial Entrepreneurs
  • Advisory
    For a decent amount of time and – much more importantly – with intense practical experience we have specialised in change and innovation culture across industries, cultures, and generations. So, once you think you should get some seriously senior expertise aboard for your project, we're happy to look into your request.   Typically, moments that involve the following topics suggest the need to talk to us. Yet, this list is not exclusive. Basically, if you've read through this and made it to this point: we're happy to hear from you - even if it's about your wedding. - Innovation Formats - Intercultural Diplomacy - Creative Direction
  • Design
    Innovation and change needs the participation of the people on whom you rely to make things happen. This is where the art of design comes into play. Because without a professional, desirable design, all communication is wasted (aka nothing). If your change or innovation project is no fun - it's basically dead before you have even begun to activate it. So, may we encourage you to make things attractive, even “sexy”? Please. We support you with: - Ideation - Art Direction - Creative Direction
