Our friends over at Digital Book World are partnering with PlayScience, a New York-based children’s entertainment and education research company, to produce a free hour-long webinar, The ABCs of Kids & Ebooks. The webinar, which will look at the e-reading habits of children aged two to 13, is scheduled to take place from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29.
According to DBW, which recently conducted a “nationally representative survey” with PlayScience, “it was found that 55% of all children aged 2-to-13 in the U.S. read ebooks.”
PlayScience president Dr. J. Alison Bryant, Ph.D., will be the event’s guest; the webinar is being moderated by DBW editorial director Jeremy Greenfield. Bryant and Greenfield will discuss, among other topics, the size and scope of the children’s digital reading market; e-book discovery among children and their parents; and the access and use of various digital reading devices by children.
