Connections: Discussing screen time for kids at school


When we ask how much screen time is too much for kids, we're often thinking about screen time at home -- whether it's TV, videos games, or social media. But what about screen time at school?

An increasing number of schools are incorporating devices into their lesson plans. Should that screen time factor into overall limits for children? What's the difference between leisure screen time and screen time for education? Our guests discuss those questions and more. In studio:

  • Dr. Steve Cook, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics at Golisano Children's Hospital
  • Tony Tepedino, digital literacy teacher at Allendale Columbia School
  • Kristin Rorapaugh, president of the Allendale Columbia School Parents' Association
