July 15, 2009
8:30am - 5:30pm
Wallenberg Hall
Stanford University

The first seminar on media multitasking will be held on Wednesday, July 15th, 2009 at Stanford University. The LIFE Center and CHIMe Lab at Stanford University, in collaboration with the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, are convening academic and industry leaders with the goal of encouraging a new community that will engage in interdisciplinary knowledge sharing, agenda-setting, and collaborative research. The seminar will focus on:

  • media multitasking and cognition
  • media multitasking and learning in informal and formal environments
  • designs that leverage media multitasking
  • funding and policy implications

To encourage as much discussion as possible about the future of research on media multitasking, we are inviting interested faculty and students to attend the workshop as observers at no fee. Please visit the Seminar page for more details.
