On 20 September 2022, five Berlin schools were awarded the "Excellent Digital School" seal of quality by Aziz Bozkurt, State Secretary for Youth, Family and School Digitization. The award with the quality seal "Excellent Digital School" is an appreciation of general education schools of the State of Berlin for their sustainable and quality-oriented commitment in three subject areas:

Accompaniment and promotion of young people with regard to digitally supported education
Classification of digitally supported education in teaching and learning processes
Cooperation and networks

The awarded schools are:

Grundschule im Beerwinkel
The Georg-Klingenberg-Schule and the Nelson-Mandela-Schule successfully submitted to the recertification process this year and once again convinced the audit and jury.

Astrid-Sabine Busse, Senator for Education, Youth and Family: "I congratulate the excellent schools. The current challenges in the pandemic have more than illustrated the importance of digitally supported education. School development processes can no longer do without good digitization concepts. The seal schools have successfully faced up to these tasks and mastered them. It is important to me to think of good pedagogy and school digitization together. In the course of the implementation of the Digital Pact, today's award-winning schools play an important role as multipliers for the further development of digital media education in the Berlin school landscape."

The quality seal "Excellent Digital School" aims to develop the skills of the students that are outstanding for learners in the 21st century with the focus lying on communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking.
