For more about what we hope to make:

In today’s media-saturated world, parents of young children often struggle to navigate an overwhelming torrent of media consumption and new technologies. To cut through the noise, WGBH will create a dynamic, online resource addressing parents’ biggest questions. We will convene a community of media experts at WGBH, peer networks of tech-savvy parents via and, and academic expertise from the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. This unusual alliance will provide crowdsourced, curated responses to parents’ most pressing media-and-technology questions. 

Thank you!
