Media education project with the Junges Theater Bonn
Deutsche Telekom and the Junges Theater Bonn (JTB) launched a new media education project in 2015 to raise student awareness of how to use the Internet safely. Fourth graders at elementary schools in Bonn and the region participated in a special project day. Last year, they worked together with their teachers to write their own play focusing on the opportunities and risks of the Internet. A key element of the class project was presenting the Internet as a "human machine." Different students played the role of people using the Internet, pretended to be the servers or acted as routers. Thick ropes connected the users, servers and routers. Students then had the chance to perform the play for their parents and fellow students. Deutsche Telekom has been collaborating with the JTB since 2004.
