In the 25th anniversary year of the Comenius EduMedia Awards, Deutsche Telekom took home the top prizes for its digital education offerings Teachtoday and SCROLLER.

Deutsche Telekom has successfully taken part in this international competition for many years with its digital education offerings Teachtoday and SCROLLER magazine. Teachtoday and SCROLLER have earned accolades from the judging panel since 2016: in recent years, both of these educational offerings have been recognized with the Comenius Awards Seal of Quality. “We are very proud to have won the EduMedia Medal for the first time,” said Barbara Costanzo, Vice President for Group Social Engagement. “Due to the difficult learning conditions students currently face, digital education offerings are becoming more important than ever. Expanding the offering to television lets us reach even more children and their families.”

Judging panel recognized expanded offering 

In April, SCROLLER TV launched its first episodes on the “Dabei” (take part) channel on Magenta TV. This half-hour TV format, produced for elementary schoolchildren by the Teachtoday initiative, encourages creative, competent media usage. At the Comenius Awards in Berlin, its innovative infotainment concept was recognized alongside Teachtoday and SCROLLER magazine with the Comenius Medal, the most important European award for European educational media.

“Teachtoday is an exemplary initiative for promoting media skills, with highly recommended didactic and pedagogic materials,” stated Dr. Bernd Mikuszeit, vice-chairperson of the Comenius judging panel, in his laudatory speech. 

What Deutsche Telekom’s educational initiative has to offer

On Teachtoday and Scroller, children and adults alike will find a variety of practical tips and materials. SCROLLER is also available as a free print magazine and online. The children’s media magazine, which has won both the Stiftung Lesen (German Reading Foundation) seal and the German Design Award, offers exciting stories, puzzles, and hands-on activities to young people.
