American children are immersed in an electronic environment yet there is not a clear understanding of how this level of media exposure impacts children’s cognitive, social, and emotional development. The purpose of this state-of-the-knowledge conference is to assemble a trans-disciplinary group of experts to discuss media exposure and its effects on children in the home, school, and community.
