Data protection and privacy, copyright and online sharing are increasingly gaining importance in the course of digitization.
Teachtoday takes into account the different habitats and ways that children and young people use media within the family, at school and during their free time. Teachtoday’s offers are applicable to specific, day-to-day situations. They are directly available for parents, grandparents and educators to put to use with children and young people. The initiative offers support both via its website, www.teachtoday.de/en/, and directly on site at your place of learning. Teachtoday also looks across borders and offers information about international best practice projects and is available in various languages. The children's magazine SCROLLER (online and printed versions) for youngsters ages 9 to 12 promotes safe and competent digital media use with exciting stories, puzzles and participative offers.
Teachtoday was launched in 2008 as an EU initiative under the auspices of the former EU Commissioner Viviane Reding and implemented in many European countries by leading Internet, mobile and telecommunications companies in cooperation with the European Schoolnet (EUN). In Germany, Teachtoday was initiated in a partnership between Google Germany, Microsoft Germany, Telefónica Germany, Deutsche Telekom AG and Vodafone. In April/May 2014, responsibility for the Teachtoday initiative went over to the Deutsche Telekom AG and has been carried on independently in its own name.
