A new study
of the Hans-Bredow-Institut and the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg
will examine the significance of digital media for adolescents' growing up and relationship building.
die Bedeutung von digitalen Medien für das Aufwachsen und die Beziehungsgestaltung von Heranwachsenden untersuchen. For this project, we are looking for families from Hamburg or Nuremberg and the surrounding area who would like to participate in the study and the interviews related to it.
About the Study
Nowadays, children grow up with a variety of (digital) media offerings. There are always new devices and opportunities to use them that shape the lives of adolescents and play a role in the everyday life of families and schools. This raises many questions.
- How do they deal with this constantly changing media offering?
- What changes in transitional phases, such as the transition to primary school?
- What influence do media have on the growing up of children?
The project takes a closer look at these questions by looking at family life and media use over a longer period of time.
That Is What We Are Going to Do
We are looking for families in and around Hamburg or Nuremberg
- who have a child that just started school
- or just transferred from primary school to secondary school.
In qualitative interviews we would like to talk to both the child and one of his parents. The families will be accompanied for several years and interviewed at home at regular intervals. The first two surveys are scheduled for autumn 2018 and autumn 2019.
As a thank-you for their participation in the project, the families receive a small expense allowance.
