This presentation will discuss the research on modern media, parenting, and early childhood. Dr. Radesky will review her research regarding how the mobility and interactivity of smartphones and tablets have fundamentally changed the way parents and children use technology, and its effects on family interactions. Implications for improved digital design and parenting guidance will be discussed.

Dr. Radesky received her M.D. from Harvard Medical School, trained in Pediatrics at Seattle Children’s Hospital, and completed subspecialty training in Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics at Boston Medical Center. Her NIH-funded research focuses on the use of mobile/interactive technology by parents and young children and how this relates to child self-regulation and parent-child interaction. She was the lead author of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines about media use by young children.

This is the second in a six-lecture series. The subject is Social Media Research: What We Know Now. The next lecture will be January 23, 2020. The title is: How Do Online Social Networks Influence People’s Emotional Lives?
