As Kids’ Media Use Increases, Will Ed-Tech Investments Follow?

A recent study by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that the amount of time young people spend with entertainment media has risen dramatically, with 8- to 18-year olds devoting an average of seven hours and 38 minutes a day to media use. And because they spend so much of that time “media multi-tasking,” young people actually manage to pack a total of 10 hours and 45 minutes worth of media content into those 7½ hours.

With this key role that media plays in children’s lives, it is crucial to support the creation of innovative educational technologies that can be used for teaching and learning.

Startl and Berkery Noyes will be hosting the Venture Capital in Education Summit 2010 in NYC June 8-9, 2010.  We’ll be bringing investors together with entrepreneurs showcasing trends and new products and projects in the marketplace.
