Linebarger, Deborah L.
Phi Delta Kappan, v93 n3 p62-65 Nov 2011

Thanks to a number of recent, large-scale research projects, it's time to put those concerns to rest. Not only does educational television have powerful effects on children's learning at home, but recent evidence documents how it can be a powerful learning resource in school.
