Book tips: media literacy for children and young people

Media literacy has become an important topic in the upbringing and education of children. Because we live in the 21st century; Digitization is no longer a future scenario, but has long been a reality. So how do you deal with computers, smartphones and the internet? And wouldn't it also make sense to learn to program as a child so that you can later understand how the digital tools that you use every day work? I guess so. That's why I've picked out some literature for you that can help both parents and children to find the right path together in the forest of bits and bytes;)

What is a social network? How does a computer work? What should you watch out for with apps on the smartphone? Book tips on the topics of digitization and media literacy can be found in this guide.

"Make your media license" - book from 2019

The Internet and the media, tools, and sites most people use within it change almost daily. So it is all the more important to stay up to date when reading the topic. For example, the book “Make your media driving license” by Thomas Feibel is quite up-to-date, because it was published on August 30, 2019. In a manner appropriate for children and teenagers, information is given, questions clarified and knowledge requested. The whole thing is loosely illustrated by Igor Dolinger. You can take a look at the cheap but very well rated book on the Amazon product page.

Books on digitization, computers and co.

If you continue to look around on Amazon, you will find numerous other books on digital and electronic topics. One is for example the "digital world" band from the "Why? Why? Why? ”- series (from 2017). It also discusses apps and platforms such as WhatsApp and Instagram. It also covers computer programs, video games, cyberbullying, social networks in general and much more.

What's new is "Computers for kids: this is how PCs, laptops, smartphones & Co. work“From mitp Kids Verlag. The book from 2019 deals with computers, smartphones, tablets and what they have in common with pocket calculators. The book is ideal if you want to explain everything from the basics to input and output to the system structure. So this is more about using a PC, but unfortunately less about the Internet and apps.
