Research Monitoring “Growing Up with Digital Media”

Research Monitoring “Growing Up with Digital Media”

Numerous initiatives, institutions and academic research projects have focused on the changing media challenges and on how young people deal with them. The knowledge of this research is often scattered and unmanageable. This transfer project aims at collecting information and findings in order to create a knowledge base for various stakeholders. The leading articles concentrate on current topics, i.e. social network platforms, live-streaming apps or cyberbullying, from a media education and media law perspective. Thus, the quarterly public reports, which are available for download, show important developments including chances and risks from which educational and political calls for action can be derived.

Project Description

The research monitoring “Growing Up with Digital Media” is part of the project “Youth Media Protection and Media Education in Digital Media Environments” which has been funded by the BMFSFJ [Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth]. Four issues have been published from May 2014 to June 2015, structured by the topics of media use research, media education research and developments in media regulation. Each report contains one or two leading articles about current topics that have been researched from a media educational and a media law perspective.
