$2.5 Million to Study Digital Media and Children

Georgetown University?s Children?s Digital Media Center (CDMC) received a five-year, $2.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study the influences of digital media on very early development.  Georgetown Psychology Professor Sandra Calvert will lead the collaborative studies that include scholars from The University of Massachusetts, The University of California at Riverside, and The University of Texas at Austin.


"I would like to congratulate Professor Calvert on this remarkable accomplishment,? said Jane McAuliffe, Dean of Georgetown College. ?It reflects both the university?s leadership in the empirical sciences and, more significantly, the impact that her scholarship has on the field of early childhood cognitive research.?
