Schools in ebern are now reference schools for media education

Youth growing in a world of "apps" today, "tweeds" and "hashtags" at. Terms that many adults capitulate to, as well as the omnipresence of smartphones and tablet computers. Social networks are the interest groups of today; children and young people live online and in their own trendy media reality. "This world is not always a familiar one for parents and educators" says roland baumann "but it does exist and we have to deal with it." The doctor of science teaches at friedrichruckert high school in ebern and is also a media pedagogical and information technology advisor for high schools in lower franconia.

How to get a grip on the possibilities, but also the dark sides of this media world? This question has been addressed by the school administrators and teaching staffs of gymnasium and middle school in ebern. It is the question of media competence. The leaders of both schools agree that you can't keep young people away from the media. The goal must be to educate students to become competent media users.

Schools with a certificate
For their efforts to find the right strategy for a sensible and dosed handling of media in school, both schools were awarded the title "reference school for media education" last week in dillingen awarded. They thus join a phalanx of now 120 schools in bavaria that want to meet this special challenge of our time.

The double melanie steps out of the shadows

The double melanie steps out of the shadows

The same first and last name, but two different people: this is not so unusual with a not exactly rare first name like melanie, paired with the surname meyer. The fact that the two play handball on the same team at TV etwashausen can lead to irritation, however. Confusions exist, but they are rare.

Whether it stort? "No, it’s absolutely no problem," says the double-ganger, who is almost three and a half years younger than her. "I’ve gotten used to being called little melanie meyer. We have known each other since childhood. But because of the age difference, we never played on the same team."A distinction in "little melanie meyer" seems logical also in view of the body coarseness. The younger one, who is not even distantly related to her coarser teammate, measures eleven centimeters less.

It was really complicated when a third "melanie meyer" joined the women’s handball team in sthashau. "That was two or three years ago. But she no longer plays."Since then it’s been a little easier, at least as far as names are concerned, says melanie meyers, the younger one of the handballers left over from sthashausen. She has been nineteen for just over a week and has just finished her first semester in psychology at the university. She decided on the spur of the moment after graduating from high school, partly because she wanted to study something to do with people. "I might add the pedagogy track to the list."

Forchheim dares modern fountain art

Forchheim dares modern fountain art

When it comes to fountains, mayor franz stumpf (CSU/WUO) feels like a "burnt child". With an allusion to the frequently defective time fountain at the forchheim train station, stumpf opened agenda item seven of the planning committee on monday: new construction of a fountain in kloster-/eisenbahnstrabe.

"Daring!"
However, after bamberger artist bernd wagenhauser presented his fountain to the committee, confidence prevailed among the city councilors. Only manfred mauser (FBF) was skeptical about the design: "I can't do much with it."
On the other hand, manfred hummer () found the artwork "daring and interesting"; stefan schick and edith fieber considered the work "successful and josua flierl emphasized that thanks to this "very good work of art", the city will be able to enjoy a better quality of life its slogan "modern, with an old core" will be fair. Reinhold otzelberger (SPD) was also pleased that the city now has its first steel fountain.

Own creativity in demand
However, otzelberger's enthusiasm about the inspiration of the bamberg artist was not entirely without irony: "in this way we are following the prince-bishop tradition: bamberg stimulates what is realized in forchheim."
Albert dorn (SPD) pointed out that all art is created in the eye of the beholder. In this, the SPD council was right in line with bernd wagenhauser's philosophy of art: viewed from the front, the 2.40-meter-high fountain gate should be reminiscent of a camera shutter that opens up a view of a dynamic spiral. But what the viewer ultimately perceives when looking through the gate is a question of "self-creativity", said bernd wagenhauser. The spirals of his fountain art stretch over nine meters; they adapt to the slightly sloping land – and become smaller and smaller: the higher spirals are 1.50 meters high, the lower ones only 60 centimeters high.
The sparkasse forchheim, which is donating the fountain to the city and will place it in front of its school building in the eisenbahnstrabe, has commissioned bernd wagenhauser, an artist who has already won 19 competitions. And of course the discussion about the poorly maintained time fountain at the train station has not escaped his attention. Probably for this reason, he pointed out that his fountain had no basin in which plastic water could accumulate; moreover, the duses were so coarse that they could not calcify. And finally, wagenhauser emphasized that his steel fountain sculpture will also be attractive in winter and in times without water: "the fountain achieves its effect even without water."

School bus stop changes after vacations

school bus stop changes after vacations

Right after easter, on tuesday, 3. April, the expansion of friedhofstrabe starts. The first section stretches from the kirchgrundsiedlung junction to the intersection at the sports center. The relocation of the morning school bus stop from the square at the elementary school to the fire station is effective from thursday, 12. April.

"In consultation with the KOB, bus services will be suspended in the morning during the first three days after the easter vacations, i.E. From monday, 9. April, until wednesday, 11. April, will continue to be made via friedrich-muller-strabe, which will in all likelihood mean that your children will arrive at school with a certain time delay. This has been agreed with the school administrators", according to an information letter from the city to the parents of elementary and middle school students.

This should give everyone enough time to adjust to the new situation. In the letter, the city also comments once again on the safety of the new school path: the avenue of poplars is regularly inspected by tree experts, so that a hazard can be ruled out. "In addition, representatives of the police inspection hammelburg and city employees will be on site in the first days as observers and to support their children respectively."

Rough appearance for the backpack

It’s crazy. Unbelievable 13 weeks it is now ago that I packed my coarse the kindergarten bag. It seems like an eternity. In the meantime it was used as a school bag for playing school, as a diaper bag for the dolls and as a picnic basket for excursions. This whole "corona break – we all couldn’t believe it at first, could we?? Good thing we did not know how long it would last. But now, as i dig out the lunch box for the rough first day today, i’m getting a little weepy. As serious as the situation was, it was also a very beautiful time. So intense, without appointments, just living the day to the full, sometimes even in her pajamas. But nothing stays forever and in this case that’s a good thing. The three year old asks me every hour if she can really go back to kindergarten on monday with all her friends and teachers. As if she can’t believe her luck yet. And still: what will it be like to let her go after such a long time?? Will it just walk in like no time has passed, or will it stick to my leg and hide behind me?? We parents were not allowed in the kindergarten. Handing over the child with mask at the door. Where she is received by educators wearing masks.It’s a good thing that the needle is well prepared. Her kindergarten backpack was filled with "corona-medicine" during the lockdown. "To keep everyone healthy", so her wish.

So the children and their parents had a wide range of activities in the city of schweinfurt.-martin’s church taken place. "Many of you are very excited about the first day of school. After your birth and the start of kindergarten, you have your third rough day today", explained the religion teacher. "The serious side of life begins with school. This statement is not exactly. But learning to read, count, write and paint is the serious part of life, but it also brings a lot of fun." The general tension was released as soon as there was singing in the church. The children found it very funny to sing with a face mask. After that they finally went to school.
