What do parents think about technology?

Sep 26, 2017 Categories: Education Today

I read an interesting article about parents and technology – and thought I’d share it. It’s based on a research study out of the US that asked parents how they see technology used by their children, what they thought the benefits of tech use were, and also what they worried about.

It’s interesting to see that the themes raised by parents in this study are the same as the concerns and patterns that parents tell me about in Australia. They have similar ideas and they see similar benefits – but also similar worries!

You can listen to the report below, or read it here.

If you are short on time, have a look at the infographics – see if you agree or not with the research outcomes!
