Check out this great interview about the Cooney Center’s report report, “Learning: Is There An App for That?” with Carly Shuler, the study’s co-author, and Lisa Guernsey, Director of the Early Education Initiative at the New America Foundation. They discuss the phenomenon of the “pass-back” effect, in which parents share their devices with their young kids, what it is about these apps that are so appealing to young children, as well as how to determine whether apps are developmentally appropriate.
