Social media algorithms in Czech media literacy
Kořenář, Patrik ; Wolák, Radim (advisor) ; Supa, Markéta (referee)
Transition from mass media to new media is closely tied to a number of societal and technological changes. Global social media platforms are dominating both consumption and production of media content and doing so they employ series of complex technologies, e.g. algorithms. Delegation of labour from humans to these complex systems (in recent years operating on basis of machine learning) has serious influence on many aspects of individual life and processes inside a society itself. In this work we analyse function and influence of social media algorithms and we try to find out if and to what extend is this information transfered into media literacy of high school students in Czech republic. We come to a worrying conclusion that despite its massive influence in contemporary media landscape, the topic of social media algorithms in Czech media literacy and media education is basically absent.

Kalášková, Jana ; Wolák, Radim (advisor) ; Odstrčilová, Klára (referee)
The compulsory mathematics matriculation is a long-standing topic of discussion among the professional and lay population. The amendment to the Education Act, mandating compulsory mathematics graduation for all secondary school students, was first introduced by former Education Minister Marcel Chládek. For the first time, the matriculation exam was to be compulsory for students taking their matriculation exam in the 2020/2021 school year. Now students can choose between a foreign language and mathematics. The topic of this thesis is the issue of the compulsory mathematics matriculation exam and its media portrayal, in my case in the news coverage of Nova television and Czech Television, where I will examine the coverage of the topic in the main evening news of both media. The aim of my thesis is to find out how the examined media portrayed the issue in the period from June 2013 to June 2020, how many reports were devoted to the topic, how long they were, which people are associated with the topic and which parties expressed their views on the topic.

The study clarifies and defines tabloid features and how they change in time through quantitative content analysis. The quantitative part is completed with qualitative case study which compares the tabloid aspects in tabloid press Blesk and broadsheet Lidové noviny. The results of the analysis say that some tabloid trends, for the most part visualization, are more intense, on the other hand some presumptions are not confirmed, for example big titles or short texts in the articles. Czech tabloid daily press is characterized by dominance of home news and soft news, this proportion did not change through time. The results of case study about death of former president Václav Havel in 2011 indicate that Blesk and Lidové noviny refer about the same topic in a different way in the beginning.

Media educationin the family
Cigánková, Klára ; Wolák, Radim (advisor) ; Šťastná, Lucie (referee)
The master thesis "Media education in the family" discusses media education strategies of parents, or, in other words, parental mediation. This discussion is important because the family, in addition to the school system, is largely responsible for influencing the media literacy of children. The theoretical section of this thesis sums up how this topic was processed in foreign and Czech studies, and describes the main characteristics of parental mediation. Media education strategies of parents are also assessed in connection with the socialization of the child, and with the education and communication styles in family. Frequently, studies describe three types of parental mediation, which are: active mediation, restrictive mediation and social co-viewing. Although these types of mediation were defined mostly in connection with the viewing of television programs, it is possible to transfer these types, with small changes, on to other media, including the internet. The practical part of this thesis contains a qualitative analysis of in-depth interviews with parents who have children between the ages of 12 and 15. The goal of this analysis was to find out what parents think of the relationship between children and media, which strategies of parental mediation they are using, and which conditions and...
