Medien als Sozialisationsinstanz im Jugendalter (German by Kathrin Mütze

By Kathrin Mütze

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Medienpädagogik, be aware: thirteen Punkte, Philipps-Universität Marburg, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Medien sind in unserer modernen Gesellschaft des 21. Jahrhunderts über Radio, Fernsehen, web und Co. allgegenwärtig. Sie sind Teil unserer Alltagskultur und elementarer Bestandteil der Wissensgesellschaft geworden. „Zweifellos leben wir in einer Gesellschaft, in der Menschen, die nicht medial verbunden oder integriert sind, vom sozialen und kulturellen Leben weitgehend ausgeschlossen sind“ (Mikos, wintry weather, & Hoffmann 2007, Medien - Identität - Identifikationen, S.7). Immer wieder werden in der öffentlichen Diskussion Fragen aufgeworfen, used to be Medien mit Menschen insbesondere mit Kindern und Jugendlichen, die in dieser „durch Informations- und Kommunikationsstrukturen geprägten Welt“ (Lash 2002 zit. in Mikos, iciness, & Hoffmann, Medien - Identität – Identifikationen 2007, S.7) aufwachsen, machen. Nicht selten wird insbesondere auf Grundlage alarmierender Medienberichterstattungen über gewaltbereite, bewegungsarme und deshalb dicke Jugendliche, die zudem scheinbar immer häufiger Lernschwierigkeiten und Aufmerksamkeitsdefizitstörungen aufweisen (vgl. Kneifel 2009, S.11f.), der Eindruck erweckt, diese müssten in einer möglichst medienarmen Umwelt aufwachsen, da Medien „primär ein Risikofaktor für Heranwachsende seien“ (Süss, Lampert, & Wijnen 2010, Medienpädagogik - Ein Studienbuch zur Einführung, S.18). Dabei wird jedoch übersehen, dass Medien „zu einer Sozialisationsinstanz geworden (sind), mit und in der Jugendliche ihre Identität aushandeln (Mikos 2004, Medien als Sozialisationsinstanz und die Rolle der Medienkompetenz, S.160). Dieser Umstand konnte durch various Jugendforschungen belegt werden (vgl. u.a. Barthelmes 2001 und JIM-Studie 2010). So entsteht das detrimental Bild von „der Jugend“ mehr „aus der tendenziösen Berichterstattung der Medien […] unter den Nachrichtenfaktoren Negativismus und Sensationalismus und (kann) nicht mit objektiven developments der Jugendforschung belegt werden“ (vgl. Göppel 2007, S.183f.).
Doch wie wirken Medien nun auf Heranwachsende? Wirken sie überhaupt und welche Rolle spielen sie dabei für die Sozialisation von Jugendlichen? Welche förderlichen und nachteiligen Auswirkungen hat der Medienkonsum für Heranwachsende und wie können diese im Umgang mit Medien unterstützt werden? Diesen Fragen soll in der vorliegenden Hausarbeit unter der zentralen Fragestellung Welche Chancen und Risiken ergeben sich aus den medialen Lebenswelten für die Sozialisation Jugendlicher? nachgegangen werden.

Diese ist in Deutschland bis auf wenige Ausnahmen - z.B. menschenverachtliche oder verfassungswidrige Inhalte- gesetzlich gesichert und im Grundgesetz verankert.

Wirft guy allerdings einen Blick auf die gesellschaftliche und politische Realität hierzulande und über die Landesgrenzen hinweg in andere demokratische Systeme, so stellt sich die Frage, inwieweit dies überhaupt garantiert werden kann.

Denn used to be steht hinter den Begriffen der freien Meinungsäußerung? Wie können Informationen überhaupt allgemein erwerbbar sein? Welche Faktoren haben Einfluss auf Journalisten und Medienmacher, auf Vertreter von Politik und management, auf die Gesellschaft?

Können die Medien die gesellschaftliche und politische Realität überhaupt noch spiegeln oder konstruieren sie diese und üben dahergehend einen wesentlichen Einfluss auf die demokratischen Strukturen im Lande aus?
Mit diesen Fragestellungen möchte ich mich in den folgenden Seiten auseinandersetzen, aber auch die Grenzen und Probleme, das Für und Wider der Funktion der Medien heutzutage skizzieren.
