GESS Claims 2nd Spot at IHK Competition

The project “On Digital Tracks” from our Grade 7 German Section has been received well at the prestigious competition for German schools abroad of the German Chamber of Commerce. We were awarded the 2nd prize which carries a prize money of 40, 000 EUR. The jury commended our exemplary implementation of the KMK strategy “Education in a Digitalised World”. They were in particular impressed by our project-oriented open learning curriculum design where our students are nurtured to be independent learners, acquire important media and information competencies and are gaining crucial awareness of the enormous potential but also risks involved when using digital media. Here you can find the project description (German language version only). Unfortunately, the official award ceremony on the 5th of May 2020 in Berlin had to be cancelled.
