Media Skills

School in the digital age has the responsibility to give young people orientation in a world where digital media have become a matter of course by now. The objective of media instruction and training of media competence is to teach how to handle media in a competent, self-determined, creative and socially responsible way.

At our school we offer instruction for all our students in the essential principles of working with computers: basic terms in the world of computers, hardware, operating systems, word processing, spreadsheet, presentations.

For many years Schulzentrum Marienhöhe has been a certified training institution for the European Computer Driving License (ECDL). We offer our students from grade 8 onwards preparation courses for the ECDL tests.

Students who like writing can participate in the development of the school paper with reports, essays or poems. Talented photographers and filmmakers are always welcome to produce pictures and clips for the schools website, facebook site or Marienhöhe TV. The marketing department is always interested in creative students’ work.
