• Ce travail propose une analyse cohérente de l'environnement médiatique, tous supports confondus, avec un éclairage inédit en France, inspiré des recherches internationales en cognition sociale. Il montre comment les représentations mentales et les représentations médiatiques sont en miroir l'une de l'autre. S'appuyant sur des exemples précis de contenus et comportements à risque (violence, pornographie, conduites ordaliques...) ayant suscité beaucoup d'émoi dans l'opinion publique, l'auteur démonte les mécanismes de la réception et de l'impact des médias. Son approche dynamique de la socialisation des jeunes par les écrans est complétée par des solutions pratiques et constructives pour les parents et les éducateurs qui répondent à leurs inquiétudes et leurs interrogations. Sociologue des médias, Divina FRAU-MEIGS est professeur (Sorbonne nouvelle)

  • Supporting children and young people to participate safely, effectively, critically and responsibly in a world filled with social media and digital technologies is a priority for educators the world over.

    Most young people in Europe today were born and have grown up in the digital era. Education authorities have the duty to ensure that these digital citizens are fully aware of the norms of appropriate behaviour when using constantly evolving technology and participating in digital life.

    Despite worldwide efforts to address such issues, there is a clear need for education authorities to take the lead on digital citizenship education and integrate it into school curricula. In 2016, the Education Department of the Council of Europe began work to develop new policy orientations and strategies to help educators face these new challenges and to empower young people by helping them to acquire the competences they need to participate actively and responsibly in digital society.

    This volume, the first in a Digital Citizenship Education series, reviews the existing academic and policy literature on digital citizenship education, highlighting definitions, actors and stakeholders, competence frameworks, practices, emerging trends and challenges. The inclusion of a wide selection of sources is intended to ensure sufficient coverage of what is an emergent topic that has yet to gain a strong foothold in either education or academic literature, but has received wider policy attention.
