Media-Educational Habitus of Future Educators in the Context of Education in Day-Care Centers
Friedrichs-Liesenk├Âtter, Henrike
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v7 n1 p18-34 2015
This research explores these questions: (1) How are the forms of media-educational habitus of future educators shaped? (2) What conditions influence whether or not media education is done in day-care centers? The qualitative study consists of six semi-structured interviews with media education teachers in educator training, four focus group discussions with future educators in the second year of their courses and four group discussions with future educators in their third year. Data reveals two different forms of habitus: "The day-care center as shelter against "bad" electronic media" (type I) and "media education and the inclusion of electronic media as parts of the day-care center" (type II). These beliefs and attitudes will be a factor in the continuing integration of media education instructional practices in German day-care centers.
