We live in a world where we face the social impact of media everyday. Some say that we are socializing in a more impersonal way then we did before. Without even being aware of it, we are easily being affected by the reach of media. Based on our personal values and attitudes media can encourage us to perform in specific ways. We as designers believe awareness of this topic is crucial, to enlighten the impact social media can have on us, and to encourage conscious use. “Digital Media Habits” is a design diploma that explores how to support lecturers in creating awareness and reflection for teenagers on their social media use. Based on a workshop strategy and a set of interactive learning tools used in classrooms. In this report, we will guide you through our design process and proposal. The project is based on research and user insight on social media use and its effects. The goal of our diploma has been to provide information to youth in an accessible way. Hopefully encouraging reflection and correctional action towards an individual’s social media usage.
