Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale

 

Digital Childhood – The Earlier, the Better?

26.01.2018, Berlin | Smartphones, tablets, computers, gaming consoles – children are confronted with digital media at an increasingly early age and on a daily basis. Scientists have only recently begun to study how children grow up, live, and learn in the digital age. To what extent does early media use influence child development? When is media consumption harmful, and where does it offer opportunities? What can parents do right, and where can they go wrong? How and from what age should digital media be used in kindergartens and schools? These questions will be addressed by the platform “The Debate”: online at www.die-debatte.org and live on February 8, at 7 p.m., at the Haus der Wissenschaft in Braunschweig. Join us for the discussion!

The Platform "The Debate"

Science crucially contributes to the development of our society. In the public perception, however, it not only represents progress but is often seen as a threat to human safety and security. The more science changes the conditions of life in ways that are tangible to everyone, the more it needs to engage in a constructive dialogue with society. To enable citizens to participate in this discussion, it takes a solid general education in the sciences and an understanding of scientific research.

The initiative Wissenschaft im Dialog (Science in Dialogue), the Science Media Center Germany, and the Technische Universität Braunschweig have launched the platform “The Debate.” It offers a space for discussing controversial science topics and scientific perspectives on socially relevant and much-debated topics. This takes place in the form of live debates, factual videos, multimedia information tools, and interviews.

The Schering Stiftung is pleased to be able to support the platform “The Debate.”
