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.
By presenting competitions and projects as well as interviews with media education specialists, Landwehr highlights the advantages and disadvantages of digital development and builds cross-generational bridges. (Sophia Stemmer, Media + Education, January 2017)
