Should we be Giving Children Unlimited Access to Devices or Should we be Limiting Screen Time?

During this online course, I have read countless articles about incorporating technology into the classroom. I find most articles neglect to say anything negative about technology use. Are we really benefiting from the extra screen time? Most children go home and spend their free time staring at screens/devices. Children no longer have an imagination. Is it a race to stay on top of the latest trends or is it damaging our children? Communicating face to face is far more personal than looking at a screen. How far are we willing to take the use of technology? Have we already gone too far?

  1. It is fair to assume that this applies to all children? “Most children go home and spend their free time staring at screens/devices. Children no longer have an imagination.”
