Since the coronavirus pandemic entered our lives, questions have arisen about the outsized impact of the time our kids are spending with media and technology. Join us for a rich virtual conversation with leaders in early childhood education as we discuss the benefits and challenges of media and technology in the development of our youngest learners, and how educators can better support children and parents in the classroom and at home. We'll explore the latest research from Common Sense, including The Common Sense Census: Media Use by Kids Age Zero to Eight, 2020 and its sister report, YouTube and Kids: How Ads, Toys, and Games Dominate Viewing, as well as Children, Executive Functioning, and Digital Media: A Review, 2020.
