Children's Media Use in America


Tuesday, October 29, 2013 Zero to Eight: Children's Media Use in America 2013 Two years ago, only eight percent of families with kids under the age of eight had tablets in their homes. Now that number is 40 percent. The average amount of time kids spend using a mobile device each day has tripled. And -- for the first time -- the average time spent with "traditional" screen media has decreased.

What does this mean? Our kids are growing up mobile. This week, Common Sense Media announced our latest study, Zero to Eight: Children's Media Use in America 2013. The results are remarkable.

There has always been at least some sort of disconnect between how things like mobile learning are taught in a classroom and how things work in the 'real world'.

Useful tool to be aware of, thanks!

Muito bom o artigo, e uma ótima ferramenta para pesquisa de alunos e professores, para melhorar seu desempenho e utilizar melhor esta ferramenta tão presente no nosso dia a dia que é a internet, a importância da leitura não é muito apreciada por muitas pessoas, que já se acostumaram com a cultura da informação mastigada que a TV e a internet consolidaram em nosso país.

Se o problema é tempo, os bookmarks estão sempre oferecendo a opção read later, e com o apresentado no artigo acima, ainda resume todo o texto para os mais apressadinhos, vale a pena conferir e utilizar.
