In autumn 2017, the Media Council for Children and Young People launched a creative, pedagogical and didactic media education project in collaboration with the "Future Classroom Teacher" at the University College of Copenhagen and internship schools in Gladsaxe Municipality.

Several experts gave presentations on human rights and democracy online, data ethics, digital surveillance and digital self-defense. The student teachers developed their own teaching material to make this complex knowledge tangible to children and young people. Documentary filmmakers Ida Grøn and Julie Madsen documented the project up until the conference #SAMMENDIGITALT ("digitally together" in English) in January 2018. The resulting documentary, called "The Digital Education Experiment", includes video diaries of the student teachers about their reflections and their progress throughout the project.

The #SAMMENDIGITALT conference was hosted at the Danish Film Institute in January 2018, providing an opportunity for relevant stakeholders to debate digital literacy issues and for student teachers to present their experiences. Watch a video of the event in the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) video gallery.
