In Saturday’s NY Times there was an article about the future of the web, where the authors predicted that meaning will be added to users’ questions and a search engine’s results.  Here at CMCH, we are already offering this service for our Database of Research!  Our Smart Search option allows parents and researchers to ask a question about media and health in their own words, without needing to understand how keywords and search engines work. 

Some recent questions from real users include:

  • Can parents prevent children from experiencing unwanted effects of violent television?
  • Does watching TV lead to obesity?
  • Does media literacy improve health choices?
  • How does sexual programming effect children?

Try out Smart Search for yourself  — Enter one of the questions above or try your own!
