This publication is a contribution to the debate regarding the current attempts of schools in Germany to open themselves up to collaborations with community partners.

Within the context of the KuBiM pilot programme Children making Art with Media, projects were conducted in a number of Berlin elementary, special needs and integrated schools. Through an intensive team research process these were then reflected upon by those participating. Both the question concerning the potential of digital media for students with special needs as well as the critically questioning of this labelling were central topics in the projects. These were broken down into particular situations and school specific questions and answered from a practical perspective. Here the artists, elementary school students, teachers and accompanying researchers publicize not only the results, but also want to provide inspiration, recommendations and individual “recipes” for pedagogic in-school media projects. Througout this process, light is also shed upon the advantages and problems related to working with external and internal school partners.

The book and the DVD are published both in German and English, in order to facilitate a connection to the international debates e.g., about the much further established practice of artists in schools in England.
Both data carriers are intertwined with each other and reveal their information through the reading and cross-referencing of materials. This interdependence of digital and analogue media mirrors the production methods which proved themselves particularly successful in the activities of Children making Art with Media.
