Children are using technology intensively, and even more so in light of the pandemic. They consume a vast quantity and mind-boggling diversity of media content using a growing array of devices that connect seamlessly to the internet. What are the promises and pitfalls in children's technology use?
This talk will discuss the challenges parents face as they seek to provide guidance to their children even as the technology evolves rapidly. It will also touch on how parents can seek to effectively manage their children's media diets, with and without the help of technology. It will also highlight resources that can support parents and children.
