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.
