Ensuring digital equal opportunities at an early stage: adesso hosting services GmbH, a subsidiary of IT service provider adesso AG, is getting involved by donating to MedienMonster, a non-profit association committed to promoting media skills among school pupils.
MedienMonster, supported by adesso hosting services, helps schools and institutions in setting up a creative media programme in the form of work groups. Through various workshops, educators and teachers learn how use technical material, and they are provided with concepts and material for work groups where children are given the opportunity to explore new media in a fun way. The association was established by ADACOR Hosting GmbH, a business partner of adesso hosting services.
Through its commitment to this cause, MedienMonster wants to promote equal opportunities. Digital media are becoming an increasingly dominant feature in our everyday lives and in the workplace. At present, children primarily learn how to use them in their social and family environment. However, not all children live in an environment which can teach them how to use these media safely and responsibly. adesso hosting services’ donation helps the association to counteract these unequal conditions in cooperation with schools and institutions.
“It is important for us as an IT company that we contribute to promoting digital media skills at all levels of society,” said Joachim Seidler, managing director at adesso hosting services. “MedienMonster is taking responsibility for creating equal opportunities in education and we are happy to support them.”
“Our children are the future, and the future is digital,“ commented Kiki Radicke, managing director at MedienMonster e.V. “That’s why we are delighted with the donation from adesso hosting services, as it helps us in our mission to give children from all levels of society the opportunity to learn how to use the new media in a fun way.”
