Online Career Guidance
in the world of adolescents

At the end of compulsory education, adolescents are confronted with a multitude of options for their further educational path and often feel left on their own when making this decision.Since they now spend a significant portion of their free time in the digital world, it is important to support them there with an easily accessible educational and career counseling offering. Michael Kass-Buchberger, a secondary school teacher in Linz and the founder of PATHfindr (a social startup offering guidance), shares how educators, parents, and young people can utilize the digitization of career guidance as an opportunity.

Those were the topics of the Digital Parents Evenings:


Topic of the first evening on Thursday, 22. June 2023 was:

Who owns the truth?
Artificial Intelligence in the school environment

Tools such as Chat GPT can generate human-like responses to text-based queries, causing a sense of wonder, excitement and fear among many users.

It is clear that the free availability of artificial intelligence can fundamentally change the daily lives of teachers and students

However, AI-enhanced learning and teaching also has risks. Artificial intelligence can be used for cheating or plagiarism, and chatbots occasionally provide false or misleading information.

What could be a suitable framework for integrating them into the classroom as a platform with added value?

The speakers on Thursday, 22. June 2023 were Christoph Kremer and Thomas Viehböck from the ARS Electronica Center Linz (Future Thinking School).

DATE CHANGE - Due to illness, the Digital Parents' Evening on the topic of bullying will now take place on FRIDAY, 13. OCTOBER 2023 at 6 PM.

Offline or Online?
Bullying = Bullying!

Alía was removed from the class chat group and is being ignored, Rene's nude pictures are being forwarded and of Alex are being spreaded.

Is all of this already bullying? 

During the digital parents' evening, we will explore the question of what (online) bullying actually is and what impact it can have. Because only when we understand what bullying is can we take action against it.

Topic of the third evening on Thursday, 19. October 2023 is:

Data protection
How private is the internet?
Data protection 101 for parents and their children

On the internet, children and young people quickly come across technologies (and business models) that are designed to collect and store information about them.
business models) that are designed to collect, store and exploit information about them. But how can they judge whether everything is above board or whether they are taking a risk by revealing something about themselves?
This is where data protection helps, because it gives those whose information is digitally processed various rights.
These rights make it possible to influence what happens what happens to their own information.

In order for children and adolescents to use the internet responsibly and autonomously, it is important that they also know and can exercise their (data protection) rights. We will discuss what parents should know about data protection to support their children in this regard during the digital parents' evening.

Speaker on Thursday, October 19, 2023: Raphael Albert, Data Protection Consultant and Certified Data Protection Officer.
