The tenth "Gautinger-Internet-Treffen" - a collaboration of the Institut für Jugendarbeit des Bayerischen Jugendringes, SIN (Studio im Netz e.V.) und Jugend online/Netzcheckers - will take place on 11. and 12. of March 2009 in Gauting, Germany. On the occasion the jubilee a paper entitled "1999 - 2009: 10 years of media pedagogics" will be published.
A lot of things have changed in the area of media pedagogics, media literacy and media education. The internet has becoming part of the everyday life of the media generation of today. The young people meet each other in the virtual communities and being online belongs to their digital lifestyle. The conference is considered to be a meeting point for media experts - this year’s anniversary appointment is used as an opportunity to pause to think. A view backwards helps to understand the present - a view in the future implicates stimulation for contemporary media pedagogical activities. Theoretical contentions with the issue by input of competent referees will be complemented by suitable impulses for projects and everyday practise. The Gautinger-Internet-Treffen will be a platform for exchange of experiences, new ideas and stimulation for conceptual further development.Personalities of the media pedagogical work are invited to contribute an article for the anniversary publication. Recent and ancient texts about the line of development of media pedagogics (f.e. youth protection, media education) or new prospects are wanted.Get further information from
