Sesame Workshop and The Joan Ganz Cooney Center today released the report Always Connected which examines the media usage patterns of young children.

Findings include:

  • Nearly 80 percent of young children (ages 0 to 5) use the internet at least once a week and just under half of all 6-year-olds play video games.
  • Almost nine out of ten children over age 5 are TV viewers -- at least three hours daily.
  • A gap remains in access to technologies, especially among low income and ethnic minority children and also notable differences in usage.
