Screen Time and the Socioeconomic Divide – Trending In Education – Episode 149

Mike, Brandon, and Dan discuss a recent New York Times article that points out that the digital gap between high and low socioeconomic status is not what we expected it to be. How have the leaders of Silicon Valley changed the way their children interact with screens and devices? How is the use of screen time inverting traditional expectations about use of digital products? Is screen time the learning equivalent of easy access to fast food? We explore our own personal experiences and awareness of time with screens, discuss how screens might influence empathy and social emotional learning, and look ahead to what might be next in the evolving landscape of parenting, education, and time on screens.
