The course deals with media habits of children aged seven to twelve and growing up with media. It gives an overview of the different types of media and their perception in the age group and shows the advantages of (early) media education. Furthermore, the course gives an overview of which media experiences can overwhelm children in the age group and how to recognise media that are suitable for children. Finally, the course shows the importance of the family and the social environment in relation to children's media use behaviour and how dealing with media at home can be learned and accompanied.
The course is modularised and makes it possible for the MediaParent consultant to offer and conduct a media educational parents' evening on the topic of "children's media habits" at educational (leisure) institutions. Learning is promoted through helpful practical materials and the supportive environment on the internet. The course consists of five modules, accompanied throughout by tips, practical exercises and feedback questions.
