Discussion: Technology and Media in Children's Lives

As this week’s Learning Resources show, the use of media and technology continues to grow among school-age children. According to a recent study by the Kaiser Family Foundation, children between the ages of 8–10 spend almost 5.5 hours a day consuming media, while children ages 11–14 spend over 8.5 hours consuming media each day. These developments have inevitably raised questions about how media use affects children’s development and whether or not limits should be placed on the time children spend consuming media. In this Discussion, you will consider what place technology and media should assume in the lives of children. Reflect on the following:
