Media Usage in the Digital World (2018)

Today’s media society has undergone fundamental changes due to technological developments, primarily due to the Internet and mobile devices. The universal availability of interactive media services and online social networks generate new opportunities for media use, but also leads to new challenges and dangers. Adequate media literacy is therefore increasingly developing into a crucial qualification to be able to move in the world of life and work. This creates new demands on media competence, which relate to the reflective, self-determined, responsible and participatory handling of new information technologies, data and information. Since a lack of media literacy limits the possibilities for political participation and cultural participation, political education without media education is not possible. In this context, “digital sovereignty”, i.e. the ability to act and decide for oneself in digital space, also plays an important role.

The Team

The team #girlspower says YES!

We are six highly motivated girls who are currently attending the tenth grade of Saarpfalz Gymnasium in Homburg which is located in beautiful Saarland. Even though we’re all completely different types, we have a few things in common which are very important: all of us are really interested in politics, especially in current political issues, languages, and – apparently, fitting our topic „Media Usage in the Digital World“- the Internet, particularly social media. We chose this as our topic because media are becoming more and more important these days and we are very excited to show our ideas and solutions for it. Also, all members enjoy helping people and socialising very much. If you’d like, we would be happy if you could follow us on our social media to watch our progress!
