2nd focus group workshop in Finsterwalde, Germany

On June 19, 2020, the second focus group workshop planned in Germany was conducted as part of the one-time free advanced training in media literacy education for ECEC teachers in rural areas. The eight ECEC teachers from the Elbe-Elster region in Brandenburg, Germany, openly answered the focus group questions on the Kit@ training concept in the form of a modular, interactive manual and practical examples for use in ECEC. Developing media literacy already for the youngest members of our society is seen as very important. Initially expressed concerns, e.g. to use tablets already in ECEC, could be eliminated by intensive discussions among the participants.

Kit@ Media Literacy Training – Media Education for ECEC Teachers in Rural Areas

In June the long planned media literacy training for ECEC teachers in rural areas could finally take place. The free training was conducted on June 5, 12 and 19, 2020, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the training rooms of the partner E&G Projekt Agentur GmbH.

In the practice-oriented Kit@ further training programme, eight ECEC teachers from the Elbe-Elster region in Brandenburg, Germany had the opportunity to train their knowledge in the area of (digital) media literacy. In a vivid and practical way, they were given the necessary knowledge to successfully plan and implement media-pedagogical learning offers in ECEC.

In a professional setting, the ECEC teachers from seven regional ECEC centres were able to make their first experiences in working with photos, stop-motion and audio in a goal-oriented, meaningful and creative way. With a lot of motivation and fun they created their own photo collages, stop-motion films and audio plays. In addition to didactic tips, they received exciting background knowledge about today’s media world from children.

After the media literacy training in the classroom, some ECEC teachers took the opportunity to be coached by the trainer from E&G directly in their own ECEC centre. Many new experiences could be made and besides the children, the ECEC teachers and the trainer from E&G had a lot of fun.
