At home I have a reader and a pre reader but they are also two very smart little people who know more about mindcraft and youtube videos then I ever will. At school they learn using computers, chrome books, projectors, iPads and iPods. They are using technology ALL THE TIME but are they engaged or turning into Minecraft zombies from too much screen time?
I learn every day from them and I hope sometimes they learn from me.
I also realize that even though they are in school from 9-3 there is so much more learning that goes on at home and its my job to make sure that time away from school is quality time. I think our time needs to be well spent on being a kid and knowing the good stuff. So we travel, try new things, bike ride, swim, play games, read and read and read. What are your thoughts on too much screen time? Will that change how they learn when they get to high school, college, a real job? Here is what the mayo clinic says about screen time but what about the ability to be engaged later down the line? Anyone?
