If you missed the Early Childhood Investigations webinar with Rachel Barr of Georgetown University and Claire Lerner of Zero to Three, be sure to check it out the playback and slides available on ECI’s website.  During their webinar on “Screen Use for Children Under 3: Research-Based Guidelines for Screen Sense,” Rachel and Claire discuss the research on the use of technology and media with children ages birth to three years.  Along with discussions about the research, the presenters refer to Zero to Three’s recent publication Screen Sense:  Setting the Record Straight—Research-based Guidelines for Screen Use for Children Under 3 Years Old and give practical tips practitioners, parents, and caregivers can apply when using digital tools with very young children.
