Article by EDC and SRI Staff Featured in Special Issue of Journal of Children and Media

Children and Media

EDC researchers and colleagues from SRI have published an article in a special commemorative issue of Journal of Children and Media that celebrates the publication’s 10-year anniversary. Co-authored by Shelley Pasnik (EDC Vice President and Director of the Center for Children & Technology), Carlin Llorente (SRI Senior Research Social Scientist), Naomi Hupert (EDC Research Scientist), and Savitha Moorthy (SRI Senior Education Researcher), the article provides a review of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB)-Public Broadcasting System (PBS) Ready to Learn Initiative within the educational media landscape.

The authors have collaborated for 10 years to measure children’s learning outcomes under the Ready To Learn initiative and have published findings from multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and context studies in a series of reports and articles. In April 2016, the team will present their Ready To Learn research during two symposia, "Ready to Learn PBS KIDS Transmedia Supports Math Learning for Underserved Children Across Settings" and "Using Curated Public Media Resources to Support Children’s Mathematics Learning," at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association in Washington, DC.
