1 The Concept of Bildung

‘Bildung is what remains after one has forgotten everything one learned at school.’

‘Bildung is the combination of the education and knowledge necessary to thrive in your society, and the moral and emotional maturity to both be a team player and have personal autonomy. Bildung is also knowing your roots and being able to imagine the future.’ (European Bildung Network)

In Module 1 of our Erasmus project Transdigital Education we looked at the concept of ‘bildung’. What does it mean for students, teachers and parents? How has the idea of bildung changed over time? How may we inspire educational change? How may digital learning serve to foster ‘bildung‘?
