in the digitalised world. To put it in a nutshell: a few years ago it was enough to take care of your house key and keep your pin separate from your EC card. This is certainly no longer sufficient today. How can a citizen carry out prevention independently? First of all, he needs to be aware of it, (and?) then he needs the skills and the resources to protect himself. If we take a look at where media competence is taught and developed today, we unfortunately come to inadequate conclusions. Neither in families in the parental home is there enough competence and experience to enable our children and also the adults themselves responsible citizens. Also at school we still experience far too little support for the challenges of the digitised world. As “Digital Heroes”, we
firmly believe that we would do well to support the development and promotion of media competence and media education in families and schools, as this is the key competence for prevention in the digitalised world.
