Supporting Parent-Child Experiences with PEG+CAT Early Math Concepts

Full Description: 

In this study, EDC and SRI researchers addressed the question of how time spent viewing and playing with PBS KIDS educational, non-commercial media can benefit young children’s learning, especially those growing up in lower-income communities. The pair of overarching goals of this CPB-PBS Ready To Learn research was to (1) explore how transmedia can support children’s early mathematics learning, and (2) substantively address the central role that parents/caregivers play in children’s learning. This report includes information about shifts in parent/caregiver perceptions of transmedia use, as well as how families engage with their children during transmedia viewing and play.
