Strong Family Life and School Teacher and Peer Relationships Must Anchor Youngster Tablet Use

THE URGENT PROBLEM: Technology can benefit but may also harm growing and grown brains alike. Source: Must see long but excellent video. BRAVO! Milken Institute for publishing the best perspective yet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=NcsKGGJAcEs



ANSWER I:
Face-to-face contact. Strong family life and an interpersonal social context have to anchor us all. Make the iPad a fun family and school appliance. Prevent alone use except for reading and homework. Create face-to-face media-free human interactivity zones and times and prevent interference with mealtimes, family drives, recess, outdoor play time, other friend and family togetherness opportunities. Parents -- park your device before interacting with family. Keep your child's brain green by being fully present together.

ANSWER II:
Technology has to be part of the solution, it is here to stay,

Root technology and integrate it within strong family life and embed it in positive interpersonal school relationships, starting as early as it takes, like good hygiene and diet. Teacher relationships are important and cannot be replaced and must be strengthened by technology.
