The material "Vilja veta!" or in English "Want to know!" , is used during a lesson of 60 minutes and provides teachers with a tool on how to discuss the media use of young people. The interactive part is a competition in groups where you get 27 different taks where you either reply to questions, search for an answer or fulfill tasks to test your knowledge about media in general and how skillful you are when it comes to using it in a good and efficient way, scrutinizing posts and reflecting upon the authenticity of content, pictures etc. in particular. For the competition, the groups use a computer or preferably a smart phone and you need about 30 minutes to work it through.
