We are all confronted with digital technology on a daily basis. Many people are aware that the use of computers and smartphones in the age of complete networking requires critical behaviour. Nevertheless, many people often lack the means to act and/or detailed technical knowledge about the stumbling blocks that technology entails.
The teaching of technical skills through workshops always takes place in the context of socio-political issues.


Wir alle sind täglich mit digitaler Technik konfrontiert. Vielen ist klar, dass der Umgang mit Computern und Smartphones im Zeitalter des kompletten Vernetztseins kritisches Verhalten erfordert. Trotzdem fehlen vielen Menschen oft Handlungsmöglichkeiten und/oder technisches Detailwissen zu den Stolpersteinen, die der Technikeinsatz mit sich bringt.
Die Vermittlung technischer Fähigkeiten durch Workshops erfolgt dabei immer im Kontext gesellschaftspolitischer Fragestellungen.
