Project Background Paper

A background paper on the Media Multitasking project is available for download in PDF format. This document:

  • briefly describes the current state of knowledge on media multitasking as it relates to cognitive development and learning in children;
  • defines questions and topics for interdisciplinary discussion and research coordination, focusing on the development of new methods, models, and theories for studying media multitasking effects on learning and development; and
  • is intended to catalyze discussion at the July 15 workshop.

We encourage seminar participants to read this paper prior to the event.
