Need help with my Health & Medical question – I’m studying for my class.
Address the following questions about children and technology/media use:
Why is this an important context to address when studying child development?
What would you suppose is the current social/cultural climate around technology/media use by children?
Since this is one of many contexts that interact to influence development, how might technology/media affect a child’s life in other areas?
Example: If a family is financially struggling, a child might also struggle in his/her schooling because of lack of necessary resources (food, study space, materials, etc)
Check out these articles on media/technology use for children. There are a variety of different issues, especially with very young children and using technology to replace human interaction.
