  • 50 single-board computers presented as part of the “Digitization Goes to School” initiative
  • Additional hardware provided from DFV inventory
  • Dr. Stefan Knoll: “We believe it’s important to get kids and teens excited about new technologies from an early age.”
  • Helmut Kleebank: “I’m delighted that the initiative of Deutsche Familienversicherung has found its way to Spandau.”

DFV Deutsche Familienversicherung AG just recently equipped another school with Raspberry Pi computers as part of its nationwide “Digitization Goes to School” (Digitalisierung macht Schule) initiative. On Wednesday, December 4, 50 units were presented to comprehensive school B.-Traven-Gemeinschaftsschule in Berlin’s Spandau district, with district mayor Helmut Kleebank present for the event. The company also donated the same number of monitors, keyboards, and other technical accessories to the school. Plans call for students in the school’s elementary and middle to upper grades alike to work with the new devices in the future.

The goal of the initiative is to give students a fundamental understanding and sense of technology and programming in a fun and entertaining way. A Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer with a deliberately simple structure. It was developed with an eye to making it easier for young people in particular to gain programming and hardware skills.

Says Dr. Stefan Knoll (founder and CEO of Deutsche Familienversicherung), “As a publicly listed and fully digitized insurance company, we believe it’s important to get kids and teens excited about new technologies from an early age. In the future, demand for highly qualified programming specialists will continue to rise. That means it’s even more critical to help the next generation of decision makers meet the challenges of the digital transformation early on.”

Helmut Kleebank (district mayor of Berlin’s Spandau district and municipal school official for this district) says, “Digitization at schools also means getting kids excited about the technical bases of the digital world early on. As a result, I’m delighted that the initiative of Deutsche Familienversicherung has found its way to Spandau. I hope the teachers and students at B.-Traven-Gemeinschaftsschule are very successful, but most of all, that they also have a great time working with the new computers. I’m already very eager to see the first results.”

About the “Digitization Goes to School” initiative

These days, mastering a programming language is so important that you might even think of it as a second foreign language. Programming skills and access to IT-related topics are essential to Germany as a place of education and economic activity. To bring this important subject into German schools and get kids ready for a digital future, DFV Deutsche Familienversicherung AG launched its “Digitization Goes to School” initiative, which aims to equip schools all across Germany with Raspberry Pi computers and make it easy for kids to learn programming. www.digitalisierung-macht-schule.de
