Parents Weigh in on Screen Time Habits

Parents Weigh in on Screen Time Habits | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
As a developer of an educational application for mobile devices, I often find myself wondering how parents are adapting to the new paradigm presented by mobile gaming. There has always been a debate of good screen time versus bad screen time, but as more technology is being adapted into the home that debate has shifted

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, September 8, 2015 2:58 PM

The debate over screen time for our children not only continues, but is constantly changing.  Except in a few relatively isolated conclaves, no screen time is no longer an option, but limits on the amount of screen time is also becoming complicated since some screen time is quite beneficial.  The next few years are going to see an adjustment and accommodation that aims toward minimizing negative influences. -Lon

No need to feel that you are being left behind. Get down to your library and we can explain it all. @SLS Guernseyeven runs courses for you to learn how to keep up. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 8, 2014 9:50 PM

The pace of digital technology change is such that everyone is being left behind. It is important to develop skills which allow adaptation rather than mastery. The object is not to understand one type of digital technology, but to have skills that allow us to move from one to another as they emerge and work together.
