Episode #5 - "Tots + Tech"

What happens when kids under age eight watch TV and are exposed to screens?  We'll discuss current research and practical considerations of exposing children to media during the early childhood years and offer iQ: smartparents some tips for raising young children in our media-rich environment. 

Featuring host Angela Santomero, creator and executive producer of Blue's Clues, Super Why, and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and parenting expert Deborah Gilboa, MD of AskDoctorG.com.

Guests include:

  • Lisa Guernsey, author of Screen Time:  How Electronic Media -- From Baby Videos to Educational Software -- Affects Your Young Child
  • Michael Robb, Director of Education and Research at the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children's Media
  • Deborah Linebarger, Associate Professor of Education at the University of Iowa and noted researcher on young children and media
