TIME is wrong: Screens in schools are not a hoax
CUE -- the California affiliate of ISTE -- has provided this rebuttal to the TIME.com editorial from Aug. 31, 2016, by Dr. Nicholas Kardaras titled “Screens in Schools are a $60 Billion Hoax." Dr. Kardaras is a licensed social worker who runs a center for addicted teens in New York.
Another technology-savvy educator, Derrick Willard of Charlotte, NC, has also written a powerful commentary on this poorly researched editorial: http://www.pdsblogs.org/derrickwillardblog/2016/09/12/an-educators-response-the-screens-in-schools-time-editorial/
Please share these powerful rebuttals with other educators, parents and citizens. We want support for better pedagogy with technology and appropriate uses of technology in schools, libraries and homes! Yes, some technology has been misused. We'd all agree with that. But what is a more reasoned and appropriate viewpoint? Please share your thoughts and insights!
