Index for Youth Media Protection – Handling Online-Related Risks Among Young People, Parents and Educational Institutions

Index for Youth Media Protection – Handling Online-Related Risks Among Young People, Parents and Educational Institutions

What do children and parents know about youth media protection? What risks and challenges do they see when using online media? And how do they deal with it? As commissioned by the Voluntary Self-Monitoring by Multimedia Providers (FSM), the Hans-Bredow-Institut and the JFF – Institut für Medienpädagogik in Forschung und Praxis [JFF - Institute for Media Research and Media Education] develop a reliable and valid standardised survey instrument that gathers significant aspects of youth media protection concerning knowledge, attitude and action regarding and bundles them into a so-called “index for youth media protection”. This can be analysed in further studies and interpreted regarding changes.

Project Description

Research so far only focused on mostly specific risks and security measures. Thereby, they could only give a selective insight into the perspective of individual actors. The objective of this project is to create a current, knowledge-based and repeatable basis for the further development of youth media protection. In this regard, the perspectives of different relevant actors (children and young people, parents, pedagogues) will be analysed and combined. By looking at this topic from different perspectives, we will be able to show current developments comprehensively concerning youth media protection. Additionally, we can also compare and interrelate the answers of the three groups involved with each other.
The overall objective is to present well-founded empirical evidence of knowledge, attitudes and procedures of children and young people, their parents as well as pedagogical experts regarding youth media protection. By using a standardised survey instrument, aspects of knowledge, attitude and action will be gathered bundled into in a comprehensive “index for youth protection” and presented in form of an index for youth media protection.
In a first step, a standardised survey with families will carried out. By interviewing a child each, aged nine to 16 years, and the child’s parent, we obtain results from both perspectives. The responses of parents and their children can be put into relation to each other, whereby conclusions on the interactions of both perspectives are possible.
Based on existing research as well as empirical evidence from the interviews with parents and children, we will develop a survey instrument for the interviews with educational experts in a second step, which will be used for an explorative study.
Our objective is the development of a reliable and valid standardised survey instrument that gathers significant aspects of youth media protection concerning knowledge, attitude and action regarding and bundles them into a so-called “index for youth media protection”. This can be analysed in further studies and interpreted regarding changes.
