Media Education in Youth Work [best practice]
A comprehensive media education course consisting of 4 modules spread over 15 training days allows youth workers to integrate active media work in youth work. The course is prepared by JFF – Institute for Media Research and Media Education in cooperation with Institute for Youth Work in Germany.
The knowledge acquired as part of this training is intended to enable youth workers:
- to critically analyse developments in the media and to reflect the related technological, aesthetic, legal and economic foundations;
- to get acquainted with the media usage of children and young people, regarding its significance and also to get to know media educational concepts for an active and action-oriented handling of media;
- to gain technical, aesthetical and pedagogical competence, in order to implement and further develop media education projects in their own fields of work.
