Stadtmedienzentrum Karlsruhe (SMZ KA) is the central municipal media competence center for academic and extra-curricular education in Karlsruhe.
We offer both offline and online classroom media, media technology for teaching and services, and workshops and conferences on the subject of media in teaching.
One focus of our work is media-integrated learning in schools (e.g., mobile learning). For our target groups early childhood educational institutions, schools, parents, students and teacher trainees, we provide information, training and workshops tailored to current needs. In our role as municipal media center, we assist the City of Karlsruhe in planning and implementing its digitization concept for Karlsruhe schools. We are involved in drafting school media development plans and offer direct support on the ground with the development and testing of new media-assisted teaching ideas and with the resolution of technical issues.
