Screen Use for Children Under 3: Free Webinar

Photo credit:  Quite Adept

Check out this free webinar, sponsored by Early Childhood Investigations:

Technology for infants and toddlers? Appalling or appealing? This webinar, presented by the authors of Zero to Three’s report, “Screen Sense: Setting the Record Straight- Research-Based Guidelines for Screen Use for Children Under 3 Years Old” will review the research, dispel myths, and provide new guidance about using or not using interactive technology with the youngest children. The research is clear: Children learn better and more efficiently from play and interaction in the “real,” three-dimensional (3-D) wor1d with parents, caregivers, and peers. The fact is, however, that young children now grow up in a world of technology-screens are everywhere.

This webinar will cover guidelines for parents and caregivers of children younger than 3 years on how to use screens in ways that minimize the potential negative effects and maximize learning
