When parents think of screens, we often think about all the reasons we want our kids to get off of them. We sometimes worry that video games, apps, and television are just a waste of time. But what about digital media that can help our kids learn and create? Join Common Sense to discuss the learning potential of apps and other interactive technologies, learn how to find the best products, and understand how to use them effectively with your kids.
