Transcript of The Effect of Technology on Child and Teen Development

“Personal investment changes things, and we’re all going to be a lot more invested in other,
like-minded people’s

he gets from his electronic gadgets. He forgets things like dinner plans, and
he has trouble focusing on his family

The Effects on Learning and Memory
"I'm less concerned about the adults because we ultimately have the discernment to go back and forth. But children may never have formed those precious abilities to attend and focus in a very concentrated way in order for them to connect to their own best thoughts... the two most important things I would ever tell parents:
around the dinner table every single night; and
every single day to your children"
-Maryanne Wolf

"It is not coincidental that in tandem with the rise of social media and gaming, which teenagers absorb more readily than any other group in society, we've seen the emergence of an
