The brand-new MAK LAB APP, a project in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research, mediates crucial issues for shaping the future in this era of Digital Modernity and climate change.
Attractively designed with a playful approach to the subject, it complements the parcours of the MAK DESIGN LAB, which was newly set up in 2019, and since the beginning of the year can be accessed on all smartphones at lab.mak.at.
The DIGITAL LIFE LITERACY area of the app mediates essential concepts for shaping the future of Digital Modernity and climate change. Under DESIGN LAB PATHS, users can take special tours on their own, on topics such as society, digitalization, and climate change. GAMES FOR CHANGE allows schoolchildren and young adults to playfully access the MAK DESIGN LAB’s topics.
One of the MAK’s aims in preparing the MAK LAB APP was to provide incentives to extend and intensify contact and cooperation with such educational institutions as high schools, middle schools, and vocational high schools. This invitation to get involved in research and interaction is intended not only to provide orientation but also to stimulate participation and both active and discursive engagement with such urgent topics as digitalization, climate change, and shaping our society’s future.
