Beschreibung

As adolescents nowadays use digital technologies (especially smartphones) in both private and professional contexts almost permanently, it seems plausible that digital activities also play a major role in the development of social competencies and civic participation. More concretely, the project team assumes that a combination of learning experiences in both contexts is likely to be especially beneficial in this regard. In order to draw comparisons regarding adolescents’ acquisition of social competencies and their civic participation in formal and non-formal educational contexts, the study focuses on adolescents from the Swiss and German Lake Constance-region who (a) either follow a VET program, (b) volunteer in a church, or (c) are representatives of both groups.
