Common Sense Media just published something incredible: the clearest view yet of how kids aged 8 to 18 in the US use the full range of media and technology.Based on a large national sample of more than 2,600 young people, it appears to be the only large-scale, probability-based survey of its kind. See the Full Report. This data is a powerful, up-to-date tool for parents, caregivers, health professionals, and educators. The national conversation about kids and technology has over-relied on old data, and data that doesn't account for different types of screentime. As Common Sense Media says, it's "increasingly challenging to measure the time youth spend and the things they do with media and technology." Media devices are portable, ubiquitous, and integrated as Essential tools in young people’s lives, and what counts as 'media use' or even 'screen time' is harder to define. About the Study:
