Should kids be learning on screens?

There has been a big push in recent years to increase the availability of computers and tablets in schools. Now many primary schools in Australia are introducing ‘bring your own device’ policies for younger and younger kids.

An alternative to screens in the car that we can all enjoy

I was chatting with a parent at school pick-up the other day. She told me that she really enjoyed my presentation on ‘screen time for kids’. She felt as though she now understood the real issues. Then she said that she was feeling really guilty. She still allowed her kids to watch seven hours of DVDs on a recent car trip to Queensland. She explained that there was no way her kids would sit quietly in the car for more than 15min without a DVD to watch.
