Photographic work is ideally suited as an introduction to media education in ECEC as children from the age of three can already handle this medium. It offers a variety of methods to experience the representation of reality and to explore one's environment. The spread of digital photography with tablet and smartphone makes this work particularly easy:
- It offers children easy access to creative and active media work
- and has the advantage that results are immediately visible
Although tablets and smartphones are commonplace today, analogue photography and the later independent development of images is a great experience for children. It's almost like a miracle when the final image becomes visible on the white photo paper.
