Always Connected: The new digitial media habits of young children

Just published, a new study "We reviewed seven recent studies — several never before released — about young children and their ownership and use of media. By focusing on very young children and analyzing multiple studies over time, we were able to arrive at a new, balanced portrait of children’s media habits. We also introduce portraits of children’s digital media use from a smaller qualitative study conducted by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center to add some tint and texture to the quantitative findings." Note that the study was co-sponsored by the Sesame Workshop, so the Workshop's activities are mentioned more than once.
