In 1997 two of the researchers published the book "Growing up in a Media Dominated Society. Identity, Tolerance and Communication in the Upbringing of Children". During the period we were preparing the manuscript for this book, we consulted a number of relevant books and documents as background sources for our writing. However, we were surprised to discover that we were not able to find material specifically discussing how children react to being in a dual set of value impulses from both school and media. We then concluded that this would be an interesting research area, focusing especially on the child perspective of being in an interaction between value impulses from both school and media. Our research proposal we finally formulated in the following way: THE CHILD IN THE INTERACTION BETWEEN INTENTIONAL AND FUNCTIONAL EDUCATION. A research project studying the relationship between planned education and upbringing at home and school, and the "parallel school" of the media- and computer industry.
