A project about the influence watching TV has on kids.
We live in a time where media are omnipresent. Meanwhile children spent as much time in front of a screen as in school.1
The usage of media usually starts with the TV.
Three-fourths of children start watching TV in an age of two years2
and the TV is still the leading medium in most families.3
The TV-Screen is fascinating for children.
It is a stimulation which utterly gets the kids attention in a certain age.
Mesmerized they follow what happens on the screen.
But what happens in their heads?
How does the television
influence children and what is being mediated in the shows
they watch? Which structures and values do they learn?
