Journalistenschule

Wir verbinden die Vorteile einer traditionsreichen Journalistenschule mit denen eines klassischen Volontariats. Wir bieten nicht nur die fortschrittlichste JournalistInnen-Ausbildung im deutschsprachigen Raum und Kontakte zu Top-JournalistInnen, sondern auch ein inspirierendes Umfeld.

Tech Program

Technologie und Journalismus gehen bei uns Hand in Hand. Deshalb haben wir ein innovatives Tech Program für junge Tech-Talente ins Leben gerufen, die die Zukunft von technologiegetriebenen Medieninnovationen vorantreiben. 

Upskilling

Wir machen unsere Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter zukunftssicher. Durch innovative, technologiegestützte Lern- und Weiterbildungsprogramme ermöglichen wir unseren Kolleginnen und Kollegen bei Axel Springer, ihre vorhandenen Skills auszubauen.

„Wir machen unabhängigen Journalismus zukunftsfähig. Interdisziplinäres Arbeiten ist dafür ein wichtiger Schlüssel. Technologie und Journalismus gehören für uns zusammen. Magisch wird es, wenn wir das Beste aus beiden Welten miteinander verknüpfen und daraus etwas Neues entsteht.“

🫶 Welcome dear Miriam @miriberlinmom

As of October 1, 2022, Miriam Krekel who until now has worked as the editor-in-chief of local Berlin newspaper B.Z., will step up as the new head of journalism school within FreeTech – Axel Springer Academy of Journalism and Technology.

“As a journalist and editor-in-chief, I have always been passionate about promoting talent and helping people to advance even further in the profession they love and excel at. My new role not only gives me the opportunity to do just that but also to have a hand in shaping the future of journalism, making it the best of both worlds. I’m really looking forward to working with my new colleagues and the FreeTech Academy trainees.”

📋 🗞 "The only way to learn data journalism is to try it yourself, to do it yourself,"
says Peter Sim, who introduced our j-talents to the magic of Excel and let them try it out.

After an intensive week, one thing is clear: data journalism is a broad field. It's good to have the right plow for the job.

🧠🗝 ✍🏼💻 The "Interdisciplinary Friday" is an essential part of our journalism and tech education at FreeTech Academy since the beginning of this year.

Why is that?
Because we are convinced that in order to solve problems and unlock potentials different mindsets, methods and disciplines are needed.

Our colleagues Kristin (Deputy Head of the Journalism School) and Henrike (Head of Tech Program) talked about the challenges and benefits of an interdisciplinary learning approach in episode 54 of the Mindsnack Podcast from Axel Springer.

"It's a bit spooky what you can research on the Internet, isn't it?"
Says Henk van Ess, who calls himself an internet detective and is one of the best in his field. 🕵

A few days ago, he showed our j-talents how they can use the web to get information, from Instagram to the dark web to facial recognition. 💻

Thank you for the inspiring and sometimes scary insights, dear Henk. ✌🏽

Earlier this year Henrike our Head of Tech Program took part in the Israel Tech Journey from Axel Springer.
The goal of this trip was to bring together colleagues from different Axel Springer units and countries.
Everyone on this trip got the opportunity to experience the country’s diverse culture, its challenging political history, as well as its impressive innovation and tech scene.

She recently was invited to The Innovation Engineer Podcast to talk about her learnings during this trip and to discuss Israel’s image of being the next Silicon Valley.

🌹"Be human!" was one of the central messages of Margot Friedländer during her visit to the FreeTech Academy.

The 100-year-old contemporary witness vividly described how she hid from the Nazis, was deported to Theresienstadt, made her way to New York, and finally returned to Berlin.

To our J-Talents, she said, "I hope you understand why I am speaking to you, why I am coming to you. I speak for those who can no longer speak. And I speak not only for the more than six million Jews who were murdered. I also speak on behalf of all the others who can no longer speak. I can't understand why people were murdered because they had other ideas, other thoughts."

A deeply moving evening for all, one that will stay with us for a long time. 🙏

besondere projekte

The Deepfake Report

Die Frage: Können wir in wenigen Wochen überzeugende Deepfake-Videos von PolitikerInnen erstellen? Und wenn ja: Wie reagieren sie darauf? Die Antwort gibt dieses Projekt.

HEROPEANS

Dieses Projekt erzählt Geschichten von Menschen in Europa, die sich trotz einer erlebten Klimakatastrophe nicht unterkriegen lassen, sondern für den Erhalt ihres Zuhauses kämpfen.

Hong Kong Diaries

Mit diesem Projekt werfen 17 junge JournalistInnen aus Deutschland einen Blick auf die Demokratiebewegung. Dem Team ist es gelungen, acht Menschen aus Hongkong dafür zu gewinnen, zwei Wochen ihres Lebens detailliert festzuhalten – stets in der Gefahr, verhaftet zu werden.

Für diese Marken bilden wir aus:
