Abstract: We conducted a year-long, naturalistic study that investigated what actually happens when children watch television. We video-recorded children's actions and interactions while watching television and simultaneously recorded the video stream from the television screen; these data were supported with parent diaries and interviews with parents and children. This paper describes two case studies, in which we consider children's interactions with others while watching television and the ways in which their television viewing influences other parts of their everyday lives. We find that both children actively applied knowledge they obtained from visual media to other contexts. In addition, they both shared their media viewing experiences with others, either by directly teaching others about what they had viewed or by creating new content based on what they had viewed.
