Entertainment, social life, and play are all increasingly digital. The activities children engage in, and the content and messages to which they are exposed, are based to a large extent on the media-related choices they and their parents make. In this edWebinar, watch us as we gain insight from the National Head Start Association and Common Sense Media as we share the latest research, The Common Sense Census: Media Use by Kids Age Zero to Eight, 2020.

We not only highlight the research findings but discuss strategies on how to choose top-quality content for families. You will leave this recorded presentation with free, high-quality resources and activities for online and offline to share with families as we head into winter break.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK-3 teachers and librarians.
