Media education in secondary schools

Young people today live in a thoroughly digitized world that is developing with unbroken dynamism. It opens up many opportunities and possibilities for young people, but also poses some risks and challenges.

In the classroom, teachers are faced with the daily task of supporting young people in acquiring skills that encompass all areas of media literacy. These range from knowledge about copyright, self-data protection or cyberbullying to digital well-being.

To adapt to the individual needs of students, educators should have a variety of well-prepared teaching materials at hand. This way, lessons can be practical, varied, and engaging.

The mobile Escape Game for school classes and youth groups

CODE BREAKERS is an Escape Game. In contrast to ordinary Escape Rooms, no one is locked up in CODE BREAKERS. Rather, the idea is to work together in a room to playfully solve tasks that build on each other and to crack a code at the end. It offers a low-threshold introduction to topics such as algorithms, digitization and password security, and also promotes teamwork. CODE BREAKERS is a free educational offer for all young people, regardless of a soft spot for computer science and technology. The game can be played with up to 30 people simultaneously in four adjacent rooms. The mobile Escape Game package is designed for school classes and youth groups, but can also be adapted for other target groups and topics. For this purpose, this game guide has been designed.

The goal of the project developers is to enable self-sufficient play using only the game instructions. For advice and information on the use of the materials (also under Corona conditions), please contact the project manager, Ms. Batzler: batzler⁠☞ Please insert an @ here ☜⁠medienundbildung⁠☞ Please insert a dot here ☜⁠com.
