Education for everyone
With digital developments shaping society as we know it, digital education is vital today.
Through the Digital Learning Center, Facebook wants to help everyone in society benefit from these technological advancements.
At the Digital Learning Center, children and teenagers learn to code or to work with robots, seniors get to grips with the internet and discover a whole new world, teachers learn how to make their lessons digital, and refugees learn digital skills to boost their chances of employment. These are just a few of the individuals we educate, inspire, and empower.
groups / NGOs
We give our partners support and occasionally offer community training sessions.
The Digital Learning Center is a platform that helps organizations operate more efficiently and work together in harmony. This way we strengthen digital education together in Germany.

Hannelore M & Elke M
Hannelore M and Elke M are lifelong friends who shared an interest in learning more about technology, but didn't know where to start. In their local newspaper, they discovered a local smartphone training course for over-65s from Wege aus der Einsamkeit and registered immediately. In a relaxed atmosphere, they learned how to use smartphones to make their lives easier.
When Abi, 24, was asked how he came to Germany from Aleppo, he said he “walked, ran, swam, everything…” but even this difficult journey couldn’t change his cheerful personality. After learning German, Abi came to the ReDI school because he wanted to learn more about programming. Now, he and a friend have founded an eHealth start-up that helps supervise and care for the unwell.
Batul was a French teacher in Damascus, but now she's doing a basic computer course specifically designed for women by the ReDI school. Two years ago, she traveled through many countries before eventually crossing the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. Batul would love to become a teacher, so ReDI is helping her develop the digital skills she needs to apply for the jobs she wants.
