Children, Teens, and Entertainment Media: The View from the Classroom

A Common Sense Research Study
November 1, 2012

This study documents the views of classroom teachers about the role of at-home entertainment media use - TV shows, video games, texting, social networking, music, and other media  - in kids' and teens' academic and social development at school. We surveyed a nationally representative sample of teachers for their perceptions on this issue.
