Make Your School is a project initiated by Wissenschaft im Dialog. Making, creating and teamwork are the key components of Make Your School. The project supported two- or three-day hackday events in schools all over Germany. During the hackdays students developed ideas and design solutions to improve their school with technical and digital tools. Make Your School offered students the opportunity to acquire skills that are essential for dealing with digital media. The Institute of Communication Science at the Technische Universität Braunschweig was providing the accompanying scientific research for Make Your School since February 2018. The accompanying research employed both qualitative and quantitative research methods to address the questions of which aspects of digital media literacy are generally relevant and which different definitions, views and understandings exist regarding media competencies.
