Screens In Schools Are a $60 Billion Hoax
Dr. Kardaras is the author of the new book Glow Kids: How Screen Addiction is Hijacking Our Kids—and How to Break the Trance
There is a growing conviction among educators that tech in the classroom impedes student learning. I banned it in my own classroom a decade ago.
But there is an increasing body of evidence that shows that tech devices can also cause them psychological and behavioral damage.
“Students who have been raised on a high-tech diet not only appear to struggle more with attention and focus, but also seem to suffer from an adolescent malaise that appears to be a direct byproduct of their digital immersion. Indeed, over two hundred peer-reviewed studies point to screen time correlating to increased ADHD, screen addiction, increased aggression, depression, anxiety and even psychosis.”
With all that said, the education establishment continues to feel pressure to provide students with the latest in technology, and taxpayers seem willing to assent.
The state of education is in urgent need of reassessment.
