Thanks to SWITCH's many years of support, zischtig.ch can provide more security and media competence in courses for children, young people and adults.
With its first contribution years ago, SWITCH supported media courses for parents and children. zischtig.ch is still involved in further developing the security workshops for parents and children. We believe that children, young people and parents face the same challenges. Neither the young nor the "old" can master digital security. We find that parents are better informed and tend to do more for security. In joint workshops, the different generations can practice working together. This cooperation is essential for sustainability, because after the joint course, domestic support is simply better.
With the experience gained from the workshops for parents and children, we were also able to develop elements for further training with teachers, social pedagogues and/or social workers. These last between one and four hours and can be flexibly integrated into education events. In 2019 there were around 20 events in which we were able to pass on this knowledge to experts as multiplicators.
With the donation from SWITCH, topics can be addressed and adapted to a wide range of age groups.
Next year we will continue to offer our proven range of courses for all age groups and develop them further. Particularly in the area of security, we will increasingly draw on SWITCH's security awareness expertise. And who knows, perhaps this will result in new and exciting formats for children and adolescents.
