Following the kick-off event "Unconditional Basic Income - Encouragement or incapacitation?" the current event's topic is "Digitization of Education. Democratization or Exclusion?"harmed.
A few weeks ago, the writer and translator Mathias Énard demanded an eroticism of knowledge. This year's award winner of the Leipzig Book Prize on European Understanding considers this as a suitable means against the tendency towards isolation of our time. Is education actually the key to more social participation? Will we experience a democratization of knowledge, or will the division into "digital natives" and digital illiterates solidify? What can education contribute to social cohesion? Does the digitalisation of education lead to more social justice or does it deepen the educational injustice of our society?
