In a more and more globalised world, societies and the world population are connected and need to look at the planet as a whole. Europe plays a vital role and should act and contribute to a functioning planet in that globalised world. We now live in a digitalised world and electronic devices determine our (students’) lives more than ever and the progress will continue. Unfortunately, educational systems are struggling to keep up with the pace of the process of digitalisation and many schools do not use new media enough to reflect the students’ real world.
Our project intends to make students as well as teachers use digital programmes/programming to expand their knowledge in this field by working on the field of energy and resources. The focus is laid on programming and using tools and online applications in order to work on a common topic. We would like our students to gain an awareness of the present ecological situation and take over responsibility for future generations in terms of energy use and sustainability. By combining the development of applications and the reflection of the topic dealt with, we would also like to trigger action and a change in behaviour in using resources so that the project entails long-lasting effects (sustainability).
