December 2018 - Screen Time
Research-Based Answers to Your Questions about Screen Time
On October 25, 2018, the Zero to Three organization presented an informative webinar: “Screen Sense: All the Need-to-Know Research on Screens for Children Under Five.” Every parent has questions about this hotly debated issue! So Kindermusik wanted to share the research-based findings the panel presented at the Webinar. (Panelists were Rachel Barr, a Georgetown professor and early childhood researcher; Elisabeth McClure, a researcher for the LEGO Foundation; Rebecca Parlakian, from Zero to Three.)
Here are the highlights from the presentation that Kindermusik International noted:
