Welcome to the Children’s Digital Media Center. We are a consortium of scholars located at Georgetown University, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, University of California at Riverside, Northwestern University, and Cornell University. We are dedicated to understanding how digital media influence children’s development.

Primarily through funds from the National Science Foundation, we conduct research, train researchers, and disseminate information to policymakers and businesses about children and digital media in order to create a quality children’s media environment. Some of our current projects are described below. Please feel free to explore this website to see even more of the work going on at the Children’s Digital Media Center and join us in making this vision a reality.
