From the Learning Commons:
Just what makes our children want to check their phone a hundred times a day (or more)? What are they looking for? I found this article from Common Sense Media very interesting. Find out how the creators of social media–make social media irresistible to our kids (and perhaps to us adults as well). Are our children suffering from Technology Addiction? Common Sense Media talks about this issue and has some possible solutions to handling some of our technology obsessions! Check out this great article: The Sneaky Science Behind Your Kid’s Tech Obsessions – https://www.commonsensemedia.org/blog/the-sneaky-science-behind-your-kids-tech-obsessions?j=5704023&l=512_HTML&u=88808849&mid=7000332&jb=211&utm_source=110317+Default&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=weekly
