Your child sees YouTube and you must see with

Your child sees YouTube and you must see with

It is with YouTube ...

This confuses many, especially adults, and the reaction is often that they degrade or minimize it, as a result.
I can not count, how many times I've heard adults express variants of words "There's no content" for children and young people YouTube Bookmarks. We distance ourselves with these words from something, which is a fundamental part of, being a child and young person today.
Saying, that it is a bad idea, are shown net understatement. Think about it again.
Our children and young people have access to a parallel world, they do not feel they can talk to them, to guide them through life on. A parallel world 70 % of 7-12 year olds use every day.

One of the biggest Danish YouTube and snapchat influencers Rasmus Kolbe, more commonly known as Salmon rider, tells of meeting with his fans who joyfully gets taken selfies with him, while parents loudly says that they do not know him.
It is remarkable, the parents do not spend 10 minutes to get acquainted with the child completely, but when the world hero comes from seems so strange and confusing, lets many be. They give up in advance.

So you should not see ALL YouTube videos

But there are so many……….

As Rasmus indeed write, so requires knowledge of the children's world is not that one ’binge watcher’ all sections of all YouTubers. Nobody makes, even our children, it does not make sense to see things from start to finish. YouTube videos from the known is not like a series on Netflix, where to watch from beginning to end, To understand what happens.
The situation videos, taken out of the everyday as the heroes have or the topic, they have selected. They may be repetitions of previous videos, which received great feedback and are popular challenges, called challenges, as well as 'this is important for me right now' videos.

YouTuberne is friends

In practice, we let our children and young people play with anyone, we have no idea who is. Something, as very few parents would let their children if there had been physical friends. For YouTuberne their friends. They are the ones that give them new information, tell them about what is popular at the moment and decides life's problems and joys.
Some of YouTuberne take this very seriously and live content, which is thought to glance at their status as role models. Others are basically indifferent or rather - they think that you yourself are responsible for, if you see what they do. What they basically are right, but it is something you can ask an adult. Not for children.
We can not choose our children's friends but we can consider them, and it is time that all adults with children contact makes it. Not with 'at that time I was a child' eyes but with 'it's a nice man with some values ​​I do not have a problem with'.
If it works silly, meaningless or else is not a good criterion to judge YouTubers on. It is not you, that is in focus. It is the child and the young.

Who do you want your child socialize?

Consider YouTubers who you want your child's friends, knowing that you ultimately can not decide.
There will be those, that you think is a bad influence, but if they are not harmful, they help to develop the child. The younger they are, the more you have to say about it. Remember, that often ban leads to especially young people just doing things behind the backs of their parents.
The media hardly disappear temporarily, and actually is this advice applies to all social media by children and young stars and heroes.
Social media has made it possible to be his idols very near. Or at least give the impression of being near. Conversely, singers and actors, it is relatively easy to meet the Danish YouTubers, making them even more attractive to follow and look up to.

So start a dialogue with your kids. Use 5-10 minutes watching some of it they will recommend you, and do not speak disparagingly about this photo.
When you open up Children and young people the world with an open mind, they close you in and begin to share it, matters to them, with you.
The older generations tend not, that understand the Younger culture, so there is nothing new in the dissociation is going.
The difference now is just, that a large proportion of children and young people the world going online, wherein the amount of information available, people and opportunities are enormous, and foreign to many adults.

Know 'traffic rules’

Salmon rider compares it, to be present with your child online as teaching them trafikreglerne, and the analogy I myself have used for many years.
We would never send our kids out on their bikes without prior, to have taught them to ride wearing all sorts of safety, and then only later set them loose.
On the Internet highway, many learn the rules and framework continuously, and most of the others that are just as bewildered as themselves.
A bit of interest from parents and other adults is all it takes, to give a good start in life, where the analog and digital life melts more and more.

Read more on YouTube

In recent years have begun to be researched YouTube phenomenon on Danish soil. The Danish researcher Stine Liv Johansen hAS,. made it his task to look at children, young people and their relationship with the media, and may eventually be found in a lot of articles about the area. I.e. she follows the youngest YouTube star on Danish soil, Well Münster, which is part of a whole family YouTube.

Here are some articles, which can give a better insight into the world, as many adults love to hate.

Your body, your choice – but the Internet will remember always

Your body, your choice – but the Internet will remember always

I have started a debate that can not be won.

A debate, which hits right at the core of #metoo, the 1000 accused in the Umbrella case and similar themes, that has characterized our medias for a long time.

It's not a debate to be won, not at all, as this would mean that someone loses and in this situation we can't afford that, having loosers. It's too important.

So, what's it all about? Let me start at the point of no return, where I first chose to comment on another woman's picture on Instagram.

When children and young people share illegal

When children and young people share illegal

It has long been one of the huge problems among youth online; the ability to, sharing very intimate photographs and videos without consent.

Now is approached by Facebook led to Denmark's biggest case on illegal image / video sharing among young.

And excuse my language – but it was fame time.

Even before Emma Holten was one of Denmark's first visible victims, Internet has been full of this kind of illegal sharing, and the police have been largely powerless. It is extremely organized, but pop groups, closes almost immediately and only just open long enough, that can be shared pictures.

In October, I attended a meeting at Children's conditions, which talked among others. fell on this huge problem. Here I got a brief glimpse into one of these groups, and it was not a pleasant one of its kind.

Not, as such, surprised me, as I have studied the phenomenon and its impact on young people for many years. I just never had access to one of the groups before. It is not something you'll easily, and outside above it is not safe to try unraveling of the kind. Those 99 % of users are 'just’ ordinary people, but the last 1 % is among the worst of the worst.

Many of the young is not it,I would call deliberate lawbreakers. They follow a stream, who are their contemporaries, and the use of the option because it is. Much of this behavior is due, that we have failed them in their digital upbringing, and abandoned them so they had to figure things out for yourself.

I've talked about it many times – it is the god of flies. Blind leading the blind. Children and teenagers, who have not had any in the back, to help them to stop in time. For we adults did not know better. Did not know how.

The kind is no longer workable, and now we need to put into. Police are underway, and hopefully this is not the last case.

“But what is it really working with…?”

“But what is it really working with…?”

After having tried, I started as a part-time self in 2012 it is one of the issues, I usually receive and, I barely know what the answer is on.

Not because I do not know what I'm doing. I'm just not a 'put in a single box’ kind, and tend to include everything I feel is relevant.

Since my entry as a full-time independent in the middle 2016 it has not been easier, but I try as.

Usually the first part of my answer;
The short version is, I'm specialist and expert in child and IT with a 360 graders look.”
After the sentence is usually a need for dredging, and then clap trap. In order to make stop motion, people will know what I am, or what I do?

If I start off with who am I, people are often a little confused;

  • very eclectic,
  • self-taught computer geek, which has been stuck at one side 1990,
  • a little too creative 'multi-artist',
  • Rudolf Steiner trained educator (it strikes like people a little out, as computernerd and Steiner works very distant from each other for many. Just not for me),
  • School- and SFO educator,
  • educator, lecturer and consultant and developer,
  • expert in girls and tech (which is why, I founded DigiPippi),
  • plus one can not help but to talk and write about it all. Like with many creative combinations of words and burning passion.

It is not easy to put on one's business card.

For that reason ends answer often to be;
I work with everything related to our digital and technological community to do, based on our children – future adults.

This also makes, to my target audience not straightforwardly a narrow field, but the common denominator is always people, which will make the world a better place for our children.
My clients and partners Therefore politicians, ministries, companies, municipalities, uddannelsesinstistutioner, Teachers, the children themselves and their parents.

The girl with something to say

The girl with something to say

Self-portrait by Julie

Julie is as such an ordinary girl 16 years of age. Of the, where she differs from most other teenage girls, that her life has been harder than any child in Denmark should experience. Since she was 9 years of age, she has been in residence places outside the family. We first met in June.

Before the summer started I a collaboration with Dell EMC about Hylleholt residence for girls in Faxe Ladeplads.

A place, where girls between 13 and 22 years old, when it is no longer possible to stay solid at home. Common to them is, that they have experienced failure time and time again, and therefore end up in the category 'neglected children and young people'. I went there, to give a presentation for the girls.
target: Giving them the opportunity, getting just a bit of power over their often powerless life.
Midlet: Technology.

This article is made with the consent of Julie – one of the bravest girls I have long met.

Mobile Theft in connection with schools

Mobile Theft in connection with schools

In the debate about mobile phone free school and collection of mobiles, here's a small Obstructions.

To 4. classes were allegedly stolen their total collected mobiles on Sundbyøster School Amager Friday. 18.11.17.

Facebook debateIn a discussion of Facebook group Amager tells a user about the episode, which of course creates resentment and anger. In order to make stop motion – who would steal from children?

A parent reports in the thread that her daughter saw an unknown man do it, suggesting, it is not employed. Thankfully when. Police have not yet commented on the incident, but hopefully there will be something soon.

The problem here is diverse, and it calls into question many things.

No.. 1: How is it possible at all to get near mobiles?

Were they locked up and they were good enough read inside? An ordinary school locker can easily be opened, and an unprotected and open classroom is a small matter to move unseen in. The school had a policy of rules for maintaining the, and it had taken a position on safety?

I'm afraid the answer is probably no. Schools have no experience, capacity and equipped to handle the valuables of the amount, as an entire class mobiles are. It's a new issue, as many do not have imagined could happen. Which brings me to problem No.. 2:

No.. 2: How do we ensure that this kind does not happen, and who is responsible here?

Because mobiles are private property, the school has no liability, which puts a new question the trend of collection. If to be collected, how should it be done with acceptable safety? This kind of theft can not happen, but it is a real danger, which now brings parents in a challenged economic situation. It is their own insurance, which will replace the mobiles, but the companies have precedent and experience, to address the matter? It is not always, that your insurance covers stolen items outside the home.

I would like to go beyond the point of view 'so they can resist, to take them 'and talk about the factual problem. Many times it is school policy, the children to have their own equipment. still without, that schools are responsible for a packed technology. It is something of a dilemma.

How do we ensure that this kind does not happen? I feel sorry for those poor teachers, who must handle the situation with children, has been robbed in their own school and parents, which now must find the right grimace to the whole situation. That brings me to the issue 3:

No.. 3: Who directed shit storm now against?

The school must now stand skoleret, and what should this kind of precedent teach us? Authority for the school has dropped dramatically, and it is common to both students and parents confronted school staff.

Neither the teachers or school management expect responsiveness here, and we can not expect that weak souls just leave not steal another time. Those poor kids' mobiles gives an idiot money in your pocket, and as long as they are easy to get to, it will happen again. It's easy money. Many of them.

If we look at the average value of an entire class mobile phones, 28 STKS with a head weight of iPhones and other expensive smart phones in different variations, we talk staggering amount of 6 figures. An old iPhone can be sold for more 1000 kr. ($199), so it is a lucrative business.

No.. 4: So what do we do now?

There is a clear need for collection of more schools, since they choose to do so. Mobile is here to stay, and we have to deal with the new problems that come with.

Once again comes the development and its consequences behind us, and we must adapt to new.

Had mobiles lying in the children's bags, theft had been far more costly in time and opportunity, to be discovered. In other words, the collection is easier to steal them to school tomorrow small unguarded moments. There must be resolved, as to become a normal part of the school mobile policy.

It was the first and most obvious problems. Allow me to take the consequences of this kind of theft one step further. Not before, to be alarmist but, to take the worst case scenario also. When I, with many years of experience in children and technique can think tank, people with deleting scenes also make it.

No.. 5: What about the problem areas by, that strangers have children mobiles?

I expect, of course, the children have codes on the phones and, therefore, it is not easy to get into, but will enter, then there are many methods. Without loss of the data on your phone, and data – whatever form – is valuable. In other words, not only the mobile phone, having a value. To know, what children are doing and on the mobile phone can be used for many things, and not everyone is particularly pleasant to contemplate.

Therefore, I hope, the parents of children with the stolen mobiles have changed password ALT, what the children. Social Media, games and all other kinds of apps using the login. ALT. For access to these must not fall into the murky human hands.

The mobile phone is a very private piece of technology, as we design their own preference and behavior. We must be ready to, that our use new situations and we are not prepared, we must learn from our experiences.
