Hanna Rosin of the Atlantic has published a fascinating piece detailing parental concerns and research around young children using technology. Entitled The Touch-Screen Generation, this article summarizes expert findings around the affects of television on children. Rosin also notes that this existing research may inform current practices around early childhood use of technology as there is little existing research on kids’ use of technologies such as iPads. Intertwined in this article are stories of various app developers and their approaches to designing interactive materials for kids. The Touch-Screen Generation is an insightful look into the world of children’s media and points to the need for more in-depth research on how technology usage should be approached when working with young children.
