Abstract

At present, educational policy often emphasizes teaching and learning with digital media. However, opportunities of a comprehensive media education should not be ignored. This paper presents how media education could be integrated in schools. The current strategy paper of the Standing Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs [Kultusministerkonferenz] is also looked at with regard to the anchoring of media education. Finally, an overview of current research on learning with digital media as well as desiderata is given.
