Our YES!-Team of the Richard-Hallmann-Schule Trappenkamp had the great honour to visit the Global Learning Council Summit 2017 of the Leibniz Association in Berlin, to talk to experts, scientist and companies, who are dealing with the challenges of education and digital change and even present our idea “MatchED – Matching Education and Digitalisation” in front of all those renowned international experts. We spent 3 exciting days in Berlin and got many pieces of information and tips, which helped us a lot on our project work.
What is the GLC Summit?
The GLC Summit is an international summit, which allows scientists, companies and politicians to discuss different aspects of education and the digital change, with priority on the digital education of students and employees. By presenting results of research or innovative ideas and concepts, the problems, challenges and solutions are summarised and discussed.
Day 1 – Arrival
Our journey began at the central station in Hamburg. To join the whole two days of the GLC Summit, we decided to arrive one day before, which also allowed us to practice our MatchED presentation and discuss last questions. After arriving at the hostel, we even had some time to walk through the capital and get a nice dinner, even though everyone went to sleep early to be prepared for the next day.

Day 2 – #GLCBerlin17
The next morning, we left early to the Allianz Forum, right next to the Brandenburger Tor – an awesome location! The summit began with a speech of the host, Professor Matthias Kleiner from the Leibniz Association, who even announced our upcoming presentation.
Many interesting discussions and presentations followed and during the day we were able to make many contacts, who are dealing with the same topic: the preparation for the challenges of the digitalization.
At the end of the day, right before dinner, the organiser showed us the presentation room. From this moment on, the excitement raised.
We prepared our presentation, practised the last time and tried to cope with the technology. Luckily everything worked out, we could present our idea „MatchED – Matching Education and Digitalisation“ without any problems and our audience gave us a very positive feedback.
During dinner, we had many conversations and many people seemed interested in our work.
It was highly motivating and a lot of fun to talk about “MatchED“, so when we left the summit all of us were absolutely happy and relieved.
Day 3 – End of the Global Learning Council Summit 2017
At the last day of our journey, we had to leave early again, because a fantastic photographer, André Beckersjürgen, was waiting for us at the Allianz Forum. We had a great small “Shooting” (Thank you André!) and listened to the last discussions at that morning.
We also had the chance to get our team picture with Professor Kleiner and the YES! Team (Laura and Kai).
At noon, the GLC Summit 2017 ended and the organiser asked us to give a little interview, a feedback about the summit. That was easy: to participate at the GLC Summit 2017 was a huge honour and a great experience for all of us. We could make many contacts, had
We were able to make many contacts, had most interesting conversations and could gain important information and much motivation to keep working on our MatchED-project.
