Media educational conference

May 23-24 2017

Our daily lives are increasingly permeated by media. This development does not stop at the gates of kindergartens and schools. For educational practice, this means that media cannot simply be banished from educational institutions, because media is a fixed part of our social reality. It is therefore also important in the intitution’s school to adopt a critically optimistic view of the media, which makes it possible to promote positive media use while at the same time preventing potential risks.

The conference “Medienpädagogik in der Volksschule” discusses the (media) pedagogical challenges oft he information and media society with a special focus on the needs of primary schoolchildren and shows how media pedagogy can be integrated sensibly into the Volksschule. It is addressed not only to educators, but also to all those who want to get an insight into the multifaceted spectrum of media pedagogical practice. In addition, future developments for the promotion of media literacy and informal education in the Volksschule will be presented.

Salzburg Research will be present at two of the eleven meeting points: Julia Eder and Werner Moser show the use of 3D printing and Sandra Schön will be part of the TV discussion “Open Studio: Medienpädagogik in der Volksschule”.
