Does school prepare children adequately for digitization? Professor Wilfried Bos talks about the digital skills of students.
Is a “Brockhaus” (renowned German encyclopedia) really a type of house? And what is a hashtag attached to? Whenever we encounter something we don’t know, we simply google it.

We took to the streets and asked both young and old.
"In Germany, students learn how to use computers... in spite of schools," says Professor Wilfried Bos. Many computer and information related skills are acquired outside of school.
