Alpha-sensitive podcast. Zsófia Fehér’s diploma project springs from a Stefan Lengyel Excellence Scholarship research

Date: 2022.04.23
Zsófia Fehér is graduating from MOME’s Art and Design Management MA in 2022. In autumn 2021 she won the university’s Stefan Lengyel Excellence Scholarship with her project The Importance of Social Awareness Raising.

It was based on the animated short Happy After All produced at the MOME Animation department together with directors Tamás Török and Szilárd Orosz with the purpose of promoting sensitivity and mutual acceptance. 

I see the socialisation of the Alfa generation partially on digital platforms, leading to the lack of true community values and relationships as a major problem. To address this issue, I am proposing draft activities with professional advice, instructions and quality materials”, wrote Zsófia specifying her goal in her application for the Stefan Lengyel Excellence Scholarship. 

For her diploma work implementing these draft activities, she created individual podcast episodes with the contribution of experts and guests to help parents, educators, teachers and caregivers in close contact with Generation Alpha.  

In the new podcast series Educationary launched mid-April 2022, they discuss phenomena defining our society and daily lives and explore the impact of digital technologies on the mental and social development of Generation Alpha.  

The first episode featured a conversation between the host of Educationary Zoltán Laczay and therapist and father Szabolcs Bolczár about the Internet use of Generation Alpha. The main goal of the episode was to present the complexity of the subject and to explore its various layers and aspects.   

The second episode the discussion is joined by digital content creator, Youtuber and streamer Benedek Nagy (BENIIPOWA) for a close analysis of the gaming world.
