Summary/Abstract: Currently, the Internet space is becoming an increasingly relevant environment for individuals. Intense use of new technologies, especially the social media, transforms them into a socializing environment which is almost on a par with that of school or family. On this account, it is essential that an extensive educational program be implemented in the media, aiming not to restrict contact with the new technologies, but to educate man in the use of these technologies so that they serve the good of man. This stance was the staring point for writing the following monograph, the purpose of which was to provide a theoretical and empirical foundation for developing various educational initiatives. The book is divided into six complementary chapters. The first three chapters comprise a meta-analysis of the theoretical issues which are the framework for the author’s research. Chapter four describes the methodology of research, chapter five and six contain an analysis of the studies with a diagnostic-verifying character, which were aimed at establishing the typology of the behavior of middle school students in the media space and determining its potential social and health consequences. It is a publication not only for the theoreticians of pedagogy and its related sciences, but also for the practitioners dealing with the broadly understood prophylaxis and media education.
