A national survey of parents of
children ages 2-10 by The Joan
Ganz Cooney Center finds that
more than half of parents believe
that learning from mobile devices
falls short compared to other
platforms. Other key findings
of the Learning at Home study
* Two- to four-year-olds
spend more time per day on
educational media than any
other age group: 1 hour 16
minutes for ages 2-4, 50 minutes for ages 5-7, and 42 minutes for ages 8-10.
* Television continues to dominate, according to parents, with children spending
an average of 42 minutes a day with educational TV compared to 5 minutes with
educational content on mobile devices and computers.
* Even among those who use educational content on each platform weekly, learning
from mobile lags behind TV: 39 percent say their child has learned “a lot” about any
subject from mobile compared to 52 percent for TV.
