Media Literacy and Informatics: Parental Prejudice and Expectations Regarding a New School Discipline
Hipeli, Eveline
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v11 n2 p189-202 2019
In August 2018, a new school discipline, Media Literacy and Informatics, was introduced in Switzerland. This article provides an overview of the current situation regarding the new school discipline, and its development. The article shows how schools already taught Media Literacy and Informatics. The article also sheds light on what Swiss parents expect from the new school discipline, and what they actually know about its composition. The results from a small pre-study indicate that parents express different expectations and prejudices regarding Media Literacy and Informatics, depending on the age of their children. The majority of the parents in the sample had a limited understanding of the school discipline.
