Běťáková, Anežka ; Laufková, Veronika (advisor) ; Neumann, Lukáš (referee)
This thesis deals with the issue of use of media and multimedia by preschool children, and their parents. The thesis is divided into two parts - theoretical and practical. The theoretical part is based on the study of literature and is divided into five main chapters. In these chapters, I discuss the characteristics of the preschool child in relation to the topic. I describe the field of media and multimedia and look at how media affect preschool children and what the role of parents is in the work of preschoolers with multimedia. The last chapter, which deals with literacy, is divided into two subchapters, which address reading literacy and preliteracy and multimedia literacy. In the practical part, I implemented a questionnaire survey directed to parents and also semi-structured interviews with preschool children. Through this research investigation I aimed to find out how preschool children currently perceive the media world. I also focused on the extent to which multimedia is used by today's families compared to other media or other leisure activities and how parents approach the use of multimedia by children. A sub-objective of the practical part was also to create, put into practice and then evaluate the lessons with a children book that addresses the issue of multimedia, with using reading...

Dog-assisted education for preschool children
Canistherapy has a wide range of applications and is used in social, health care and educational sectors. We can say with certainty that the concept of canistherapy is known to the general public, but the understanding of more specific approach of AAI is unfortunately distorted. The aim of the bachelor's thesis focuses on the methods of applying the AAE to children of preschool age and what impact has the presence of a dog as a part of education of children in preschool. As part of the research methods, qualitative research methods were used, specifically participant observation, semi-structured interview, secondary data analysis and photo documentation. The results of this thesis confirm that canistherapy, specifically the AAE method, is very widely used in practice, but its correct recognition does not occur. Many preschools are very interested in canistherapy, but unfortunately as a one-time experience to secure diversification of the educational process, although its use in the field of therapy has huge possibilities. The result of research shows a large deficit in the awareness amongst preschool teaching staff. Based on the results of the research investigation, a methodological practise for one-time and regular canistherapy was proposed with a focus on the AAE method, and at the same time an information leaflet was compiled, intended specifically for preschool teachers.

Possibilities of connecting exercise and dance education using drama education
Šulcová, Helena ; Ferklová, Alžběta (advisor) ; Sobková, Ivana (referee)
The bachelor's thesis describes the possibilities of linking movement and dance education using drama education. This connection should better comprehensively develop and shape the child's personality. The goal is to find out whether it is possible to connect these aesthetic educations with dramatic education and thus get the most out of the individual educations as much as possible for the comprehensive development of the child. In the theoretical part, my work deals with preschool children, their development and children's play. Children's play is the most natural way to knowledge and education for a child's development. In other chapters, I will describe aesthetic education, which is an integral part of the life of the teacher as well as of the child. It is important to take the work of a teacher seriously and leave nothing to chance. Therefore, in my work, I examine how advantageous this connection is, whether it is functional and, among other things, how it could make their work easier for teachers and better connect the individual areas that we already know from the framework educational program and aesthetic education. In the practical part, I focus on applying the lesson I created, which I apply to several selected kindergartens. The lesson that I created is created in such a way that both...
