Digital Transformation for schools

umlaut is helping German schools get to grips with the digital transformation.

Digitalization is affecting every aspect of our lives. To ensure that school pupils are better prepared for the digital challenges that they will face both in their professional careers and their everyday lives, it is up to schools to develop new and future-oriented educational concepts. With the funding programme "DigitalPakt Schule" and the expansion of broadband to provide more schools with a good internet connection, the German Federal Government wants to help the school authorities to integrate digital media and learning opportunities into lessons to a much greater extent. The funding being made available by the federal and state governments amounts to more than EUR 5.5. billion for investment in the "DigitalPakt Schule".

umlaut is supporting school authorities and schools in every phase of the journey to becoming a digital school. Our experts assist with the orchestration of the entire process – we provide information on the framework conditions, help with applications for funding and use our expertise to provide guidance throughout the entire process from drawing up plans for media development, financing and the project plan, right through to successful implementation.
