On point and relevant.
Very interesting discussion on technology and the difference between passive screen time and the more interactive types of technology. I found it very thought-provoking. It is a good starting point for parents who have concerns over allowing their kids to slump in front of a screen but are also aware that the use of technology is all around us and used in schools. I'd be very interested to hear more parent and non-parent opinions on this topic.
