The change we are seeing is not that kids can’t pay attention to things, it’s that they’re not as interested in paying attention to things,” he said. “They have less patience for being bored. What I think that all the digital activities have in common is that, with very little effort from me, something interesting happens. And if I’m bored, another interesting experience is very easy to obtain.”

Nik Peachey's curator insight, August 22, 12:48 AM

Some interesting points about screen time and screen reading. What do you think about this? How much time is too much?

They're the 'on demand' generation; if i'm bored I can use the ipad, the iphone or binge watch tv programmes. Something is always happening around them. It's a battle I have to fight at home with my 8-year-old. We tell her that it's good to be bored; it gives her time to be creative in her head and to create things rather than depend on gadgets to create the moments for her.
