From Colorado Screen Time’s website:
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, today’s children are spending an average of SEVEN hours per day on entertainment media, including televisions, computers, cell or “smart” phones and other electronic devices. Screen use and the electromagnetic radiation emitted from these devices has been associated with myriad health risks including myopia, retinal damage, sleeplessness, addiction and behavioral issues to name a few. The use of screens in schools also brings with it information sharing and privacy issues associated with online curricula, online assessments, and student data collection.
Come listen to experts in child psychiatry, radio frequency radiation, mental health, and data privacy (including our own Cheri Kiesecker!) discuss these issues.
