The purpose of the workshop is to gather experts on digital media and child development from diverse perspectives to identify research gaps and opportunities that will ultimately lead to maximizing benefits and minimizing pitfalls of media exposure and use during early childhood. Expert participants in population health, pediatrics, child development, cognitive science, neuroscience, and educational technology will deliver lectures and lead panel discussions. They also will evaluate the current state of knowledge of media exposure and use in early childhood and outline future research needs.
