Children average 30 hours every week in front of television and other screens. As they get older they are exposed to music, movies, tablets, smartphones, video games, and social networking–they spend more than twice as much time using media as they spend in school.
 
Joe Blatt, Senior Lecturer in Education and Faculty Director of the Technology, Innovation, and Education program at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, will explore the challenges children confront–and what they learn–from media. What do we really know about the effects of rapidly changing media and technology on children–and what, if anything, should we do about it?
