Children and the Media

Media’s presence in children’s lives is totally ubiquitous. Today, children spend almost six hours a day with media, they spend more time with media than any other activity, except for sleeping. This exposure has potentially negative consequences for children, yet media’s unique power and reach can also be used to educate them and enrich their lives.

Television, which once dominated children’s media consumption habits, is now joined by computers, video game players, cell phones and other connected devices. The result is that children today are completely immersed in media experiences from a very young age. Regulating the impact these experiences are having on children has become very challenging, for society.

This podcast explores this sensitive topic from three different perspectives. Disney films and the romantic ideal they present, ‘selfies’ and their popularity among teenagers , and children’s radio, a commonly thought old-fashioned medium, particularly for the younger generations.

Three Israelis, two Americans, two Latin Americans, one Arab, and one Chinese walk into the studio...this is not a joke! 'This IsReal', a fascinating multi-platform radio show that offers a unique and international glimpse of Israel. We cover people in their daily lives telling us their inspiring stories, the surprising and multicultural Israeli cuisine, Israeli breakthrough innovations, the Hebrew language, the spirituality of Israel, as well as Israeli current events & trends, brought by a team of international students.
