Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Are children being hurt by the technology revolution? This ABC News report looks at children using iPads and smart phones and finds that although hours of screen time might not damage eyesight, it is associated with behavioral problems. Other studies find that children learn better when using interactive apps. There is no irrefutable evidence that these devices harm children, but as with everything else, experts advise moderation and supervision.
