Protecting Children and Young People from Stressful Online Experiences!?

Protecting Children and Young People from Stressful Online Experiences!?

Online Survey of Teachers and Educational Staff Is Starting Now

We are looking for participants for this study:
  • Do you work with children or young people aged between 9 and 16?
  • Do you work in Bavaria, Hamburg or Schleswig-Holstein?
If so, please participate at: https://www.soscisurvey.de/jmspaed/ (in German)

Protecting young people from risks when using online media becomes more relevant due to mediatisation and digitalisation of their living environment. So far, there is little known about how the protection from online risks is implemented and promoted in schools and non-formal youth work and education.

How is online media used in the educational everyday life? What experiences do teachers have in school, educational staff in youth work, youth education or care facilities? The project “Index for Youth Media Protection” seeks to answer these questions and, thus, wants to form the basis for a further development of youth media protection.  

The Hans-Bredow-Institut for Media Research at Universität Hamburg and the JFF - Institut für Medienpädagogik in Forschung und Praxis [JFF - Institute for Media Research and Media Education] in Munich conduct a survey in Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Bavaria, as commissioned by the Freiwilligen Selbstkontrolle Multimedia-Diensteanbieter [Voluntary Self-Monitoring by Multimedia Service Providers] (FSM).

We would be very grateful if you would participate and support the further development of the youth media protection! Special knowledge regarding youth media protection or  media education is not necessary!
