With our series Making Media Yourself, we regularly offer ideas on how to easily implement media projects at home with the whole family. The aim is to stimulate creativity around digital media and, above all, to engage with it together. Children and adults sometimes use media in different ways and find different things about it exciting. In a joint media project, people can explore media together and learn how others use them. Even the child can show the parents how something works! You also learn that media is more than watching videos and listening to music.
The LETSDIGI site also takes up this idea. There you’ll find a collection of 25 colorful project ideas all about collaborative design with digital media: from a digital scavenger hunt to a family blog to a human robot and digital research diary. The projects are structured according to different themes. You can view the tutorials by project duration or by keyword. There are projects that can be implemented with young children and those in which grandma and grandpa can also participate. Have fun trying it out!
