An important result of the survey: the professionals confirm that they need digital skills in their daily work with the young people, but consider the existing training offers to be insufficient.
The project aims at developing and piloting a suitable training offer for professionals who work with disadvantaged young people. The offer focuses on a strength-oriented approach for their young target group concerning digital opportunities and challenges regarding their personal and professional development and active participation in society.
In order to develop a suitable learning concept and content for these professionals, the project partners from Germany, Spain and the Czech Republic conducted a transnational survey involving a total of 475 educational professionals and 34 experts from the fields of youth (social) work, media education, science, education and training as well as politics. The aim was to inquire about the current status of young people's digital media usage behaviour in connection with the demands on professionals in the field of digital media literacy.
The survey confirms that certain factors have to be considered with regards to the design of the learning concept and the preparation of the learning content related to digital youth work:
The detailed report on the framework conditions of a training offer for digital youth work and its learning contents and methods is available in English and contains, among other things, the national evaluations of the survey.
