Children and screen media: Best practices for exposing media to kids

Thursday, April 30, 2015, 7-9 p.m., Free, South Campus Auditorium, 2201 S. 78th Street, Tacoma   

We've all seen children navigate an iPad or tablet with ease. And, with more children learning to handle electronic devices at an increasingly younger age, it's important for caregivers and parents to help guide children's media experiences.

Dr. Sarah Roseberry Lytle, director of outreach and education at the University of Washington Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences, discusses the topic in a presentation surrounding screen media use among young children. Focusing on how, when and what preschool-age children learn from screens, she'll offer resources and guidelines to help you make decisions about screen use.
