Das web bietet die Möglichkeit leicht und unkompliziert mit anderen in Kontakt zu treten. Für die meisten Jugendlichen ist das web oft die einzige probability neue Menschen kennenzulernen, da sie in der Realität (z.B. Schule) kaum in der Lage sind andere anzusprechen. Dieser neue Weg der Kommunikation durch das Medium web ist in der heutigen Zeit nicht mehr wegzudenken. Aus diesem Grund habe ich für meine Studienarbeit das Thema: „Inszenierte Selbstdarstellung von Jugendlichen in der Offenen Kinder- und Jugendarbeit im web“ gewählt.

Insgesamt sind die neuen Medien keine „Monster“, die unsere Jugend verderben. Handys beispielsweise sind nicht nur unnützlich, schließlich können wir so mit unserem variety in Kontakt bleiben. Natürlich behindern diese modernen Erfindungen den Alltag vieler Lehrer: So dient das convenient im Unterricht nicht selten dem SMS schreiben mit der Freundin in der ersten Bankreihe. Zu meiner Zeit schrieben wir uns „Zettelchen“, kleine Botschaften, die im Unterricht unauffällig hin- und hergereicht wurden. Ziel battle dabei damals ebenso wie heute, mit der Freundin, von der guy angesichts zu vieler Gespräche und Albernheiten weggesetzt wurde, über andere zu lästern oder die Jungs in der Klasse zu bewerten- teenagertypische Dinge eben. Auch das „Computerspielen sollte nur eine spaßvolle Ergänzung der bisherigen Freizeitbeschäftigung sein und nicht die Freizeit dominieren“ (Lerchenmüller- Hilse/ Hilse 1998, S.84).

For novices, they give an attractive chance to go beyond teacher-defined wisdom and techniques through with the ability to entry a number of, substitute resources of data every time and wherever. whereas the velocity of engagement with and learn into the tutorial functions of cellular applied sciences has picked up dramatically within the final decade, there isn't any consolidated view of ways to maintain the practices or possibilities which are being explored.
Sustainability is a posh yet an important factor in cellular studying as academic associations tend to be required to make titanic investments in cellular units and linked applied sciences, time and coaching to begin cellular studying courses.
