2-6: Media characters

The course deals with media heroes for children between the ages of two and 6 and their significance for the children. It gives an overview of media figures as companions, their function for orientation and identification. Furthermore, the course shows how media figures can influence gender roles and advertising. Finally, the course shows how media education on the topic of media figures can succeed at home.

The course is modularised and makes it possible for the MediaParent consultant to offer and conduct a media education parents' evening on the topic of "media figures" at educational (leisure) institutions. Learning is promoted through helpful practical materials and the supportive environment on the internet. The course consists of four modules, which are accompanied throughout by tips, practical exercises and feedback questions.
