Early Childhood Learning and Digital Media: What Should Parents Know? SVCF Philanthropy Now Podcast

Today we're featuring a conversation with Avo Makdessian, SVCF’s vice president and director of the Center for Early Learning, and Michelle Sioson Hyman, senior early learning officer.  Avo and Michelle discuss what the Center for Early Learning does, as well as their recent research on how technology and digital media affect young children.
Michelle talks about some of the foundational knowledge in the field and says parents don't have to restrict their children from technology entirely. We also touch on how developers can help solve the widening disparity between families who have access to quality digital media at an early age and those who do not.
