Not the Same Old Coviewing

Friday, January 20, 2012

CCT's Director, Shelley Pasnik, was a featured panelist at the launch of the report, "The New Coviewing: Designing for Learning through Joint Media Engagement," on January 23 at the Joan Ganze Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop.

The report, produced by the Cooney Center and LIFE Center, explores challenges and successes in bringing families together around newer forms of media. Its recommendations will help producers who are interested in engaging children, their adult caretakers, and educators in meaningful conversation and play around digital media.

The launch event featured a walk-through of the study and discussion with a panel of the report's authors and other experts. A summary of the key points of the discussion, and a link to video of the entire panel presentation, is available here.
