Take Part In a “Quickstudy” About eBooks

The Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop is currently looking into the area of eBooks. They are working on a series of what they are calling “Quickstudies” looking at parents, children and eBooks. They need parents with children ages 2-6 to participate in a survey!

At KinderTown we often refer to the research done by the Cooney Center to guide our recommendations and decisions on educational apps. We are excited about this eBook study and hope our users will consider providing feedback. The survey will take just a few minutes of your time and there is will be a raffle for a $50 amazon gift card for participation.

Take the Cooney Center Survey

The results form the first Quickstudy wil be published in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!

What should KinderTown do?

We’re interested in the Cooney Center survey in part, because we are considering adding book apps to our recommended list of apps. There is a lot of debate about how eBooks should be used, if eBooks are as meaningful for children as traditional paper-bound books, and how much children learn with the interactive elements found in eBooks. We know the power that books hold for learning and are excited about what many developers of eBooks are doing.
