BredowCast #37 — Wie Jugendmedienschutz sein sollte

BredowCast #37 — Wie Jugendmedienschutz sein sollte

How to deal with digital media is like learning to ride a bike – even if you fall flat on your face at the beginning. Once you have learned how to handle it, it is liberating but it can also be risky. Using this analogy, Prof. Dr. Uwe Hasebrink explains the protection of minors in the media as risk management in the new episode of the BredowCast.

Episode 37 focuses on the protection of minor in the media in Germany and the recently published study "Jugendmedienschutzindex [Index for Youth Media Protection]", which the Hans-Bredow-Institut jointly conducted with the Institut für Medienpädagogik in Forschung und Praxis [Insitute for Media Education in Research and Practice] (JFF), as commissioned by the German Association for Voluntary Self-Regulation of Digital Service Media Providers (FSM e.V.).

The study asked children, parents and educators what perspective they have on this issue, what their concerns are regarding the risks of digital media and how these risks should be addressed. They were also asked about their knowledge and attitude towards the protection of minors in the media.

The findings offer a multidimensional view of the topic and support on how the protection of minors in the media should be designed in the digital age. Hasebrink summarises that a reasonable youth media protection shares responsibilities, "Youth media protection is not something that can be prescribed from top to bottom. It is a task that can only be solved together by all parties involved: in a 'network of responsibilities' consisting of providers, politicians, educational institutes, parents and children".
