Climate workshop pilot together with the LFD Sachsen e.V.

15|11|2022Together with the Landesfilmdienst Sachsen e.V., we piloted a workshop on November 15, 2022 on the subject of the Arctic and climate change with a class from the Thomas-Mann Gymnasium in Oschatz. As part of an environmental project day, we brought the Arctic into the classroom and led the children through various stations in small groups. The students were able to experience the Arctic at one station and help the climate researcher Professor Aureus, watch a film about the Arctic and climate change at another station followed by a film discussion and get creative at a third station using the augmented reality app CoSpaces. A wonderful first step towards school, which we are happy to repeat and which has inspired us to take more.

Heartucate at #kidscon2022!

25|09|2022We were able to present Heartucate at this year’s kidsCon – a conference for children’s media producers in Erfurt, which was organized by the innovation agency ida. In addition to great speakers and interactive gaming projects, we were allowed to pitch Heartucate and then present it on the Market Place. The motto was “It’s in the game”, which was exactly what applied to us, and numerous projects were presented that are currently being developed by public broadcasters directing towards interactive gaming. An exciting place to introduce our application! We are looking forward for more to come! Many thanks to everyone involved in the organisation of this event!

eduJAM educational conference “Augmented Learning” in Bern

10|09|2022Franziska was part of the eduJAM education conference in Bern (Switzerland) this year. In September, the theme was “Augmented Learning”. Here the participants could take part in various workshops on the subject of learning with extended digital methods and not only learn about the use of AI, but also about the embedding of new technologies in the educational context. Franziska offered a workshop on the subject of “Experiencing and developing augmented reality spaces”, in which participants could design their own rooms in small groups. The Arctic demo was of course also included and gave good starting points for developing your own ideas. The workshops were very popular and well attended, we would like to thank Adi, Florian and Monika for the great organization!

Skandaløs Festival Calling

20|08|2022This year there was a very special invitation from the very North: the Skandaløs Festival – which actually was organised in 2019 as a last edition – was revived and started in a new version with this year’s motto “gamification”. The beautiful festival in North Friesland at the border to Denmark came up with great musical acts, workshops, awareness offers, morning yoga sessions and a lovingly designed backdrop directly at the natural bathing lake Hülltofter Tief. With the our arctic demo we became part of the gaming tent that was there for the first time this year. Next to retro consoles and gaming machines, everybody was ablet to take a short trip to the Arctic. A wonderful time at one of the finest festivals in the country. We’d love to come back :)!
