Thought Factory Podcast #802 || Screen Time | Measuring Digital Nutrition

“Screen time” has become another thing we measure.  We are all spending time on our dopamine-inducing devices, but how much is too much?  We receive the notification, compare our numbers from week to week, and then wonder how we’ve wasted so much time looking at our phones. In this episode, we discuss whether or not managing screen time is worth the fight with a child, what daily dosage is considered a healthy amount for an adolescent, and what students are spending their screen time on while at school. We’ve read the data, we’ve heard the reports, and listened to the experts, is there a case for banning internet-ready devices from the classroom and from the bedroom?  Founder of Protect Young Eyes, Chris McKenna, joins the show to provide insight in the ever changing landscape of the online world.
