Zero to Three Shares Key Research Findings
There are many mixed messages about screen time and young children. Yet many libraries are adding apps and other screen media to storytimes and programming for young children. If you’re trying to navigate these waters, the new research from Zero to Three can help!
Zero to Three, the National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families, has published a free resource written in partnership with leading researchers in the field of media and young children that contains an “authoritative review of what is known about the effect of screen media on young children’s learning and development. It is designed to serve as a tool for guiding parents and professionals in making informed decisions about screen media use.”
Another resource to look at is Screen Time: How Electronic Media–From Baby Videos to Educational Software–Affects Your Young Child by Lisa Guernsey.
