This doctoral research study has three research questions: (1) How are the forms of media-educational habitus of future educators shaped? (2) What conditions influence whether or not media education is done in day-care centers? The qualitative study (9/2011-6/2012) consists of six semi-structured interviews with media education teachers in educator training, four focus group discussions with future educators in the second year of their courses and four group discussions with future educators in their third year. The analysis using the documentary method shows two different forms of habitus: ‘The day-care center as shelter against 'bad' electronic media’ (type I) and ‘media education and the inclusion of electronic media as parts of the day-care center’ (type II).
