Some everyday rules and tips should help parents and teachers to actively support young people on the Internet, to protect them from adult content and to prevent any addictive behavior and risks of the Internet.
Ask your pupils and students about common and popular applications on the Internet.
Talk with your students about their personal experiences on the Internet.
Implement specifically media pedagogical content (media knowledge, media consumption, media reflection) in your class and consult partners from outside the school in the (productive) media pedagogical work where appropriate.
Set rules for the use of the Internet in cooperation with parents and (older) students/pupils, but also in case of the possible Internet abuse.
Support parents about media pedagogical aspects through information sessions and parents evenings or an inside look at school media projects.
Discuss the various risk aspects of the Internet. For example, the active processing of media-related (negative) emotions or the dangers of right-wing extremist propaganda on common video portals can be possible topics.
Actively include common media and information and communication technologies in the classroom, such as for example Web 2.0 applications.
Arrange with the school, what activities and applications, security and filter settings should be made available on the school’s computers.
Red-flag pages with questionable or forbidden content at one of the mentioned institutions under "Find help – Organizations in Germany.”
