The Creative Media World of Children and Young People

  • a variety of creative digital tools
  • with essays by Felix Bänteli and Effi Tanner, Marc Bodmer, Dominik Landwehr, Katharina Nill, Franz Josef Röll and Eike Rösch

Today, children and young people are digitally networked and adept at using their smartphones or tablets. Within just two decades, digitization has produced an incredible diversity of creative tools, be it in the field of video, audio, computer games or programming. How do children and young people deal with this in everyday life?


The fourth volume of Edition Digital Culture deals with this question and reports on successful projects in the area of digital creativity. The book contains examples and case studies, complemented by considerations from the viewpoint of media pedagogics and media science. The extensive appendix references additional literature, internet sources and YouTube tutorials.
Durch die Vorstellung von Wettbewerben und Projekten sowie Interviews mit medienpädagogischen Fachkräften hebt Landwehr die Vor- und Nachteile digitaler Entwicklung hervor und baut generationsübergreifende Brücken. (Sophia Stemmer, Medien + Erziehung, Januar 2017)
