What is too much screen time? Is our generation’s preoccupation with entertainment tech damaging today’s youths, or are there ways in which we can take advantage of what multimedia has to offer? In a paper published in the New York Times, the Department of IMM’s own Warren Buckleitner was asked to write a response to a recent series exploring this controversial issue and how apps, iPads, and YouTube can be powerful tools to supplement a child’s learning. Professor Buckleitner’s paper can be found here: https://static.nytimes.com/email-content/ML_7290.html?nlid=19873011.
