NAEYC and the Fred Rogers Center joint statement on Technology and Interactive Media in Early Childhood

The following is a link to NAEYC and the Fred Rogers center on Technology and Interactive Media in Early Childhood.  In this statement they discuss that not all media content is the same. I have to agree, Power Rangers is not the same as Super Why, just as Angry Birds is not the same as the PBS website for kids.

They also discuss how that children under the age of 2 should not have any screen time, not just TV, but all types of screens.

Technology is here and it is our job as parents and educators to make sure that the technology used is for the best of the children and not just to occupy their time.
