7-12: Media characters / celebrities

The course deals with media hero figures and role models for children between the ages of 7 and 12 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 (online) 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 and celebrities" at educational (leisure) institutions. Learning is enhanced by helpful practical materials and the supportive environment on the internet. The course consists of four modules, accompanied throughout by tips, practical exercises and feedback questions.
