Handling of media in families with preschool children (Switzerland)

In this pilot Project, proposed multilingual parent-child workshops are being developed. Reading promoters are prepared in an advanced training to organize media workshops for families. In these workshops, several media activities – including digital ones – will be executed and reflected by the participating parents and children. The workshops are bi-lingual (German and first language) or multilingual (German and several other languages). The goal is to expose the parents to an effective use of media. Parents learn to know quality criteria for media as well as forms of media design. Also, they can share their experiences in their own language.

This project is run by The Swiss Institute for Children’s and Youth Media (SIKJM) (Switzerland).
