Abstract

The challenges of digitalization, networking, and automated information processing are widely discussed, and strategies are being developed on how the German education system, in particular the school system, needs to be further developed. In this context, the role of digital media education is particularly emphasized, but the role of Informatics education has so far been neglected. This article gives insight into the current discussion.
