What Is This App Doing to My Kid’s Brain


What Is This App Doing to My Kid’s Brain

Yes, the research behind the effect of digital technology on our kids is probably still years away from being legitimate, but I thought this link (plus accompany infographic – love me some infographs!) was too good not to share.

Did you know that half of all children under the age of 8 have access to a touch-screen device, whether smartphone or tablet, at home, and half of infants under 1 year watch TV or videos–an average of almost two hours a day.

What’s unknown is how media and especially touch screens, might shape kid’s attention span, language development, and dawning understanding of simple concepts.

Check out the link and let me know your thoughts…
