Generation Y

In this Inspiration Session for teachers and educators, you can take part in the online workshop created by Sonja Groiss and Anna Kaufmann that is currently delivered to school classrooms through the create your world TOUR. The workshop is based on their project ‘Generation Y’ that was recognised in the Prix Ars Electronica U19 category in 2018. In their creative and interactive workshop, the topic of digitalization is presented in an informative and understandable way using the game ‘Generation Y’. This was created by the workshop leaders and will be continuously developed. The game is played with the participants when the workshop takes place on site.

In the online version, it provides the basis for working together to gain an overview of technological and social developments and to discuss opportunities and risks. By means of group work, a basis is built up with the aim of motivating students to continue to deal with the topic after the workshop. After all, we as a society ultimately decide whether future technologies will become established.

Sonja Groiss (b.1998) and Anna Kaufmann (b.1998) attended the Höhere Graphische Bundes-Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt and went to the same class. “We find the topic of digitalization incredibly interesting and this enthusiasm was the spark that led us to design a game on this topic. In addition, we both love to design, have an eye for detail and divided the project “Generation Y” into graphic design and illustration according to our strengths and interests.” Currently, Sonja is attending the College of Photography and Audiovisual Media, while Anna is studying law at the University of Vienna. “To this day, we’re still working and tweaking the game dynamics to make the added value of the game as exciting as possible.”
