Friedrichs, Henrike; von Gross, Friederike; Herde, Katharina; Sander, Uwe
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v7 n1 p58-64 2015
This research project was conducted to explore parental attitudes towards and their mediation of video games. Qualitative, semi-structured interviews with 28 parents (14 couples) assessed their media-related habitus, their media-educational habitus and the interaction between the habitus. The results show that the media-related habitus has a significant influence on the media-educational habitus.
