Making sure everyone can #TAKEPART
Barbara Costanzo, Vice President for Group Social Engagement
“As a society, we cannot afford to leave people behind on the road to the digital future. That’s why we are promoting media literacy among children, young people, and adults of all ages through various projects and initiatives.”
#TAKEPART stories from the digital world
We are working to build media literacy skills in the population. In 2021, we reached around 370 million media contacts in Germany alone, and some 3.85 million people took part in workshops examining this topic that were organized either by us or by opinion leaders.
Some examples from Germany and Europe:
Our multi-award-winning „Teachtoday“ initiative supports children and young people, parents and grandparents, and teaching professionals with practical tips and materials. Among other things, the platform provides a toolbox with over 120 educational formats for nine- to sixteen-year-olds.
The “SCROLLER“ children’s media magazine is geared specifically to children aged nine to twelve to improve their media literacy. Topics are presented in an age-appropriate manner. For example, the “Gaming: Keeping it fun” section focuses on digital games and the values they impart.
Our #TAKEPART stories dealing with digital topics have created a platform for extending our reach by providing materials that people who aren’t experts themselves can use to organize workshops and group activities. We currently offer materials for events of various durations in 12 different topic areas – in English, German, and simplified German language versions.
The ConnectedKids project initiated in Austria by Magenta Telekom in 2013 primarily supports schools that are lacking the necessary digital infrastructure. Tablets, mobile internet, digital know-how, and teaching expertise help schools lay a foundation for the digital future in the classroom.

Just take some time out
Let’s be honest – was grabbing your smartphone the first thing you did this morning? Nowadays, we hardly notice just how much digital content we actually consume. And through this consumption, we are giving our devices a great deal of power over us. Our “We Care” magazine shows you how you can easily switch off. Find out more.
