5th Forum for communication culture of the German Gesellschaft für Medienpädagogik und Kom­munikationskultur (GMK)

Parted screen - worlds apart?
21.11.08 - 23.11.08
Gesellschaft für Medienpädagogik und Kom­munikationskultur (GMK)
Rostock, Germany

Todays' media is ever-present, mobile and versatile. A broad range of offers is provided to network, to exchange, to inform, to play and to learn. But at a closer look, the offers have sometimes strong distinctions regarding the quality, which highly effects the use of the media.

Therefore the following topics - among others - will be discussed during the event:
  • Could the use of the computer, television, Internet and mobile media cause a new boundary between different social societies or facilitate community and participation?
  • How can risks of the media usage be minimised?
  • Which methods and projects can play a part in contributing to a competent usage of the media by children, young people and families?
The forum will provide lectures, workshops and panel discussions with experts from science and practical experience.
