Opening the door to a digital world

At Facebook, we want to bring the wonders of the digital world to the widest possible audience. Technology is only truly valuable when it allows its users to realize their full potential – so every course and every class at the Digital Learning Center puts power in the hands of the people.

Strengthening media and technology literacy

We believe that all people need to benefit from digitization and we think everyone should have the skills they need to navigate our digital world. For this reason, organizations in the Digital Learning Center offer a variety of classes, from basic computer classes to design-thinking workshops and even media literacy.

Supporting local

organizations and NGOs

The principle of the learning center is simple: organizations involved in digital education can use our technically well-equipped facilities for free-to-teach classes and to organize events to benefit the local community. Interested organizations are welcome to contact us:

Educating individuals

The Digital Learning Center brings together people of different backgrounds and ages to learn how to use digital media. Everyone's welcome! Each individual has a different need and level of knowledge. To accommodate this diversity, the Learning Center houses a huge range of courses, from tablet lessons for seniors to programming for children or refugees.

Promoting exchange

Digital skills empower people to share and learn from each other. The Digital Learning Center also sees itself as a place of networking and collaboration. Interested parties can use the space to connect and exchange ideas about digitization and digital education in discussions, workshops and meet-ups.

Words from organisations:

“We want to give old age a positive face. With a project we’ve called “We’re Silvering the Net", we’ve been working for four years on bringing older people into the digital world. Previously we only worked in Hamburg, and with the launch of the Digital Learning Center, we can now teach our classes to elderly people in Berlin too.”

Wege aus dem Einsamkeit, Founder

“Our ReDI student Rami met Mark (Zuckerberg) back in February 2016. They exchanged experiences and discussed the future of programming, and how virtual reality could connect people separated by war or natural disasters. Since then, ReDI School and Facebook have enjoyed many productive discussions. It was an honor for our community to meet Sheryl Sandberg at the opening of the Digital Learning Center in Berlin in January 2017.”

Anne Kjær Riechert

ReDI School of Integration, Co-Founder & CEO

“Since we opened our first digital workshop in Berlin-Mitte in 2016, our idea and vision is to give children the space to discover new technologies through play. We believe that ALL children should be given the opportunity of a digital education. Therefore we are happy that our partnership with the Digital Learning Center has allowed us to expand and intensify our work with focus schools.”
