Monday morning at Lotta’s house: everyone is dawdling around. Daddy has to urgently answer some emails so he hands his smartphone to Lotta and her little brother Lukas to keep them quiet. They become so absorbed in the digital world that not even Klicks the family dog can get their attention. They’re all so busy with their home office and smartphone that they lose track of time. All except Klicks. But just in the nick of time they finally set off for nursery school, and that’s when it happens: Klick goes missing! What can they do to find their dog? Lotta is heartbroken. Can an app on Daddy’s phone help or is some other strategy called for here?

How to teach media skills to children – without turning it into a lesson

The author Benjamin Wockenfuß is a social media manager and addiction therapist who also runs the project DigiKids for the Hessian state office for addiction issues, which is sponsored by the TK health insurance fund. It supports the idea that digital media belongs to the world in which our children live and that it is not a question of either/or but rather the need to recognise that digital and analogue are both part of the same interactive process.
A story that triggers the imagination and shows that Lotta has fun learning to look beyond the edge of her father’s smartphone screen.

With an introduction by the author, actor, blogger and Grimme Award winner Schlecky Silberstein.

The DigiKids Project:
DigiKids is a media competence project that can be implemented from kindergarten onwards and was first introduced in 2017. The aim is to give children confidence in dealing with digital environments instead of being dominated by them. At the same time, DigiKids seeks to retain the children’s connection to the analogue world by strengthening it and developing it further. The project also aims at involving parents and teachers in the process and provides them with support training.
The TK health insurance fund Techniker Krankenkasse at present supports pilot projects in Hesse.
