Children’s Media Use and Education

The Joan Ganz Cooney Center has conducted a national survey of more than 1500 parents of children ages 2-10 to find out how much of children's media time is devoted to educational content, platform by platform, age by age. This report is the first comprehensive analysis of parents' experiences with the educational media their children use. The report measures the degree to which children and parents use media together, overall and by platform, and looks at how this joint media engagement changes as children get older. The study also examines children's reading behaviors, especially online or on electronic reading devices. The full text of the questionnaire and all topline results are appended.
