Preface: I'm only embedding an image so that I can show Caitlin that I'm not a complete luddite despite my not knowing what is "Pintrest" (though if I lived in the 19th century, I totally would have been!). Also, I'm a fan of Latrice Royale.
Dr. Rhodes mentioned that the Waldorf school she visited didn't allow students to use technology (until high school? - my handwritten notes were unclear ... if only I had a tape recorder ;-) which reminded me of an Huffington Post article I read. I spent at least 15 minutes in class "google jockeying," trying to find the article, but I could not. Furthermore, by the time I would have found it, the conversation had moved on. Not one to be discouraged by a failed google search, I came home and looked through my browser/browser's history (is browser an adjective modifying history or does the history belong to the browser? I could just say browsing history to simplify the matter, but where's the fun in that?). Back on March 10th - which took a while to backtrack using chrome - I found it! Below is the table and a link to the article which recommends the maximum length of time children should be exposed to technology based on age - according to several doctors, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Canadian Pediatric Society. This blog is either a metacognitive exercise in digital literacy or a pedantic recitation of my process to cut and paste a table. Whatcha think - about any of it?
