Educational Media Award 2021: Twelve Outstanding Apps & Games for Children

Adolescents are confronted with an unmanageable range of digital media. Parents are therefore looking for products that are pedagogically recommendable. The Pedagogical Media Award, which was once again awarded to twelve outstanding media products for children and young people, offers guidance. The winners were selected jointly by children, young people and experts.

Since 1998, the "Educational Media Award" has been presented to outstanding media products for children and young people. Especially during the lockdown period, media use by children and young people has increased sharply. Many parents want their children to engage with imaginative, stimulating and educational content during this media time. Now, twelve providers of such offerings have been honored with the "Media Award 2021" in Munich. The prize is awarded by the media education organization "SIN - Studio im Netz".
