Digital Participation for the Next Generation

An overarching question of this project is how to create new arenas for public discussion online which also foster more civil and polite discussions about news and current debates. The project will involve youth in focus group discussion and workshops (participatory design) on future solutions for next generation of online discussions and engagement, a result which will become input for media industry and society in general.

The project will contribute with input to those interested in developing interaction design and participatory news media for the online public sphere.

The focus groups discussions and design workshops are valuable methods both for learning more about everyday media use and for participatory design. Thus the project will generate knowledge about media use as well as design ideas.
