The course deals with media habits of young people aged 13 to 18 and growing up with media. It gives an overview of the different types of media and how they are perceived by the age group and shows the benefits of media education. Furthermore, the course gives an overview of which media experiences can overwhelm young people and how to recognise age-appropriate media. Finally, the course shows the importance of the family and the social environment in relation to the media use behaviour of young people and how the handling of media can be learned and accompanied at home.
The course is modularised and makes it possible for the MediaParent consultant to offer and conduct a media educational parents' evening on the topic of "media habits of young people" at educational (leisure) institutions. Learning is promoted through helpful practical materials and the supportive environment on the internet. The course consists of five modules, which are accompanied throughout by tips, practical exercises and feedback questions.
