Green ICT in Germany

April 29th, 2010 by Graham Attwell

Don’t jump to conclusions and think my German has suddenly improved. But Pontydysgu are proud to be associated with organising a seminar on Green ICT in Bremen, Germany on May 12th, along with our friends from the Institut Technik und Bildung at the University of Bremen.  The seminar features work undertaken by the Green ICT strand of the UK JISC Users and Innovations programme. JISC have also set up a Green ICT blog. Guest speakers are Josie Fraser from the JISC SSBR project, Howard Noble from Oxford University Computing Services who has been looking at low carbon computing, and  Stephen Phipps from the Univeristy of Hertfordshire, For those of you who are interested the seminar takes place from 9:30 to 17:30  at the Gästehaus der Universität Bremen, Auf dem Teerhof 58.

Das Thema »Green ICT« (grüne Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie) gewinnt in Deutschland an Bedeutung, denn vielen Computernutzern – ob kommerziellen, öffentlichen oder privaten – wird zunehmend klar; das wir auf neue Kraftwerke verzichten könnten, wenn der Energieverbrauch in diesem Feld klein gehalten wird und wir gezielt  energiesparende Technologie und Verhaltensweisen nutzen.
Hinter dem Begriff »Green ICT«, verbergen sich technische Innovationen und Ver-haltensstrategien, die bei den Nutzern, den Betreibern von Rechenzentren und sonstiger ICT- Infrastruktur und bei denjenigen ansetzen, die über den Kauf und die Nutzung von ICT-Technologie entscheiden. Das Ziel dieser Strategien ist es zum einen, den Energie- und Ressourcenverbrauch bei der Herstellung, Nutzung und Entsorgung zu minimieren (green in ICT), und zum anderen, durch die Nutzung von ICT Energie und sonstige Ressourcen einzusparen (green through ICT). Um dieses Ziel zu erreichen, müssen Anreize gegeben werden und Einsichten vermittelt werden, um zum Beispiel den Nutzer davon zu überzeugen, nicht genutzte Computer auszuschalten statt sie im Stand-By-Modus zu betreiben.
Die Implementierung von »Green ICT« steckt in Deutschland, verglichen mit Großbritannien, vor allem in Bildungseinrichtungen noch in den Kinderschuhen. Um ein erfolgreich durchgeführtes Projekt näher kennen zu lernen, und den internationalen Erfahrungsaustausch zu befördern, hat das Institut Technik und Bildung (ITB) Experten aus Großbritannien, die am »Green ICT«-Projekt ECCILES beteiligt waren, eingeladen.
Hiermit wird die direkte und indirekte Reduzierung des Energieverbrauches eines Computers, eine Analyse der (Wirk-) Faktoren die zum An bzw. Abstieg des Energieverbrauches führen, die Entwicklung von Lösungsansätzen für diese Problemstellung und die Durchführung von Energiereduktionsmaßnahmen bezweckt. Die Veranstaltung findet in englischer Sprache statt.

    News Bites

    News from 1994

    This is from a Tweet. In 1994 Stephen Heppell wrote in something called SCET” “Teachers are fundamental to this. They are professionals of considerable calibre. They are skilled at observing their students’ capability and progressing it. They are creative and imaginative but the curriculum must give them space and opportunity to explore the new potential for learning that technology offers.” Nothing changes!


    Graduate Jobs

    As reported by WONKHE, a survey of 1,200 final year students conducted by Prospects in the UK found that 29 per cent have lost their jobs, and 26 per cent have lost internships, while 28 per cent have had their graduate job offer deferred or rescinded. 47 per cent of finalists are considering postgraduate study, and 29 per cent are considering making a career change. Not surprisingly, the majority feel negative about their future careers, with 83 per cent reporting a loss of motivation and 82 per cent saying they feel disconnected from employers


    Post-Covid ed-tech strategy

    The UK Ufi VocTech Trust are supporting the Association of Colleges to ensure colleges are supported to collectively overcome challenges to delivering online provision at scale. Over the course of the next few months, AoC will carry out research into colleges’ current capacity to enable high quality distance learning. Findings from the research will be used to create a post-Covid ed-tech strategy for the college sector.

    With colleges closed for most face-to-face delivery and almost 100% of provision now being delivered online, the Ufi says, learners will require online content and services that are sustainable, collective and accessible. To ensure no one is disadvantaged or left behind due to the crisis, this important work will contribute to supporting businesses to transform and upskilling and reskilling those out of work or furloughed.


    Erasmus+

    The European Commission has published an annual report of the Erasmus+ programme in 2018. During that time the programme funded more than 23,500 projects and supported the mobility of over 850,00 students, of which 28,247 were involved in UK higher education projects, though only one third of these were UK students studying abroad while the remainder were EU students studying in the UK. The UK also sent 3,439 HE staff to teach or train abroad and received 4,970 staff from elsewhere in the EU.
