This diploma thesis describes the ethical challenges of using digital media in the classroom. It provides an outline and explanation of ethical problems and combines it with theoretical as well as practical solutions to offer guidance to teachers on how to use such media in the classroom.First, the concept of media is explained and categorized. Afterwards, the focus lies on digital media, their functions, and different forms within the classroom. This is followed by the description of the ethical challenges related to the use of digital media in the classroom. These include (1) conveying conflicting values, (2) conveying a (re)constructed reality, (3) the impact on social as well as emotional behaviour, and (4) the abuse of media by students. Finally, possible solutions are presented on three different levels, namely on the nationwide (macro), within-the-school (meso), and on the individual (micro) level. All approaches are complemented with a personal, critical reflection.
