Hadrbolcová, Jana ; Miessler, Jan (advisor) ; Wolák, Radim (referee)
The topic of parental mediation, that is how parents mediate the media to their children, recedes into the background. At the same time, parents are the ones who are key figures in children's development and children's guides in the media world. The aim of this work is to focus on parents and how they use the media in education and what are the motives and strategies of their parental mediation. During the preparation of this study, the social situation changed significantly due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With it came a number of changes in families, including in the area of media use. Based on this social change, I decided to incorporate this factor into my study and find out whether this situation brought any changes in the level of parental mediation, or what. Based on semi-structured interviews that I conducted with parents from eight families of children aged 4-10, I find out how parents use the media in their upbringing, what leads them to do so, what rules they set in the family and what are the ways of controlling and regulation use children's media. An important part is the reflection of possible changes in parental mediation in connection with the pandemic.

Pokorná, Jana ; Miessler, Jan (advisor) ; Hodboď, Vojtěch (referee)
This thesis is investigating the question of how and why there was a change in a viewership of the internet television Mall.tv during the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic in spring 2020. While looking for an answer for this work, a quantitative analysis of internal data provided by Mall.tv is used. This all is processed with the help of statistical methods. Simultaneously, this work is testing the hypothesis, according to which the audience show #kulturažije could be the key factor influencing the transformation of the size and socio demographic composition. From the results of the analysis, it is clear that the audience was not changed during the spring and that major changes are visible after the spring wave. The hypothesis, which states that the show #kulturažije was supposed to bring more new users to the website, was not confirmed but it was found that impact of the project was rather marginal.
