• Introduction

    (Digital) media are very relevant to younger children’s interests. Even the youngest ones are playing on tablets or smartphones and enjoy the funny sounds and moving pictures. For children between the ages of three and six, media are especially storytellers or toys. Children are usually unable to assess and predict the impact and consequences of their use of media. It is therefore important to include the topic of media in early childhood education and care (ECEC) in order to introduce preschool children to a competent and critical approach to media at an early age.
