Evidence-based practice is not so simple when the research is just emerging. For years weve advised families to limit children''s screen time, based on guidelines rooted in television research. Todays touchscreen devices provide very different opportunities for families. These devices are so new, we don't yet have a body of research to support best practices, leaving families with conflicting messages about appropriate media use. At the Vancouver Public Library, we've taken three approaches to working with families to develop healthy screentime habits. We provide programs for caregivers about using touchscreen apps to support children in developing early literacy skills, and in creating, interacting, and learning.
