Education should not fail because of technology: Ingentis donates laptops to VHS

July 25 2022 | Blog

Language is an important factor in the integration of people with a migration background and their success on the job market in the region. That’s why the VHS Unteres Pegnitztal regularly offers professional language courses that teach German as a foreign language and also make people fit for the professional challenges in their new homeland. “Learning also takes place in the digital space in many cases here today,” explains Dr. Denis Leifeld, director of the Volkshochschule in Lauf. “That’s why a laptop is actually already a basic requirement for completing the courses.” But participants don’t always have the necessary devices.

With the help of Ingentis, however, the gaps in the technical equipment can now be closed: 15 laptops without hard drives, which were no longer needed and therefore lay unused in a cupboard, were now handed over by managing director Jürgen Kreppner (pictured below, left) to Dr. Denis Leifeld (pictured below, right, center) and German lecturer Prof. Dr. Susanne Schnaus (pictured below, right). Their son Aaron Steinhart and his colleague Konstantin Fassmann, both IT application developers, volunteered to install new hard drives and the operating system, so that the devices can now be used by the participants in the German courses.

Jürgen Kreppner is very pleased that Ingentis was able to make an important contribution with the donation to the VHS: “Education must not fail because of technical equipment! That’s why we reacted immediately when we received the request for laptops no longer in use from Susanne Schnaus. For us, this is perhaps at first glance a small but no less important measure against the omnipresent shortage of skilled workers in our country.”
