The article presents various projects in which online communication between kindergartens has been attempted. Then the article will argue about the importance of supporting kindergarten children to be able to act in a globalized, mediatized and digitized world, both through a reflection on how society is changing and through a description of how children today use digital technologies. Finally, the article also suggests a future media pedagogy in kindergarten.
