Media is now omnipresent and is an integral part of our everyday lives. Digital development is rapid, and things that are modern and state-of-the-art today may be old and unattractive tomorrow thanks to new technology. This poses far-reaching problems and challenges for educators and those involved in youth work, as there is often little to no insight into what the next generation is currently using - and how they can safely use these media and the internet! This is exactly where the MediaXplorED training series comes in. It provides an overview of the main features and dimensions of media education and the first part of the 5-part series is dedicated to work in media education projects with the iPad or other mobile media.

These are becoming increasingly important due to the spread of smartphones and tablet PCs and have become an integral part of both private and professional contexts. From photography to stop motion, from content creation for social media to creative graphic design, well-known and new apps will be analyzed and tested for their applicability in youth work and youth education projects.
