Schools Raise the Future
Schools are where the future is raised. It is crucial for society to have well informed and skilled citizens. Yet it is difficult for educational insitutions to keep up with and convey technological change and what the future holds for us as a consequence.

INNOVATIVE PUBLIC-PRIVATE-PARTNERSHIP FOR THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION
Computational Thinking Initiative
On behalf of digitalswitzerland, Spark has launched the Computational Thinking Initiative together with digitalswitzerland, EPFL, SUPSI, other educational colleges and Swisscom.
With the project management of Sparkr, various stakeholders from the Swiss education and research landscape as well as the business community have joined forces to promote computational thinking in Swiss schools. Computational thinking can be developed very well with the illustrated robot "Thymio" and contains much more than just programming.
As a result, important future skills are promoted among pupils, new learning methods are applied in the classroom and Switzerland as a location for innovation and business is strengthened.
