5. Digital media in education – the view of students

(participation for students only)

The use of digital media in classrooms is often promoted as a way to improve learning motivation and make lessons more interactive and entertaining. We would therefore like to give school students ​from different European countries ​a voice​​ and a space​​ to jointly explore​ the positive and negative aspects of the way digital media is used in their classrooms and which conditions would enable students to become responsible and skilled users. The participation in this focus group will be reserved to students and the result of their work will be briefly presented to all participants to feed in the final panel discussion. ​
