We look on a long tradition of providing support for schools, from which comprehensive support activities have developed. While in the past we primarily worked on specific topics related to school quality, today our activities in this area of support focus on the entire school and its development. We are also increasingly seeking out international dialog in order to link players within the educational sphere and to foster the transfer of knowledge across national boundaries, regardless of the education system in question. This is aimed at facilitating the exchange of experiences, offering all of those involved the chance to address the challenges that they are currently facing within their respective education systems. Increasing digitization is also making its mark and changing school education. We are presenting the Forum Education and Digitalization in conjunction with a number of other foundations in order to provide a platform for the public debate about digitization in education and to contribute to a pedagogically effective strategy for the German education system. In doing so, our main focus is on exploring how teaching and learning processes can be improved through digital media.
