Re: Steven Pinker on Twitter: open letter, screen time: https://twitter.com/sapinker/status/817411182621380613
I am a signatory of a new open letter against the evidence-free moral panic about kids and electronic screens. https://t.co/c9LnM73DTJ—Steven Pinker (@sapinker) January 6, 2017
From the linked article:
“the concept of “screen time” itself is simplistic and arguably meaningless”
I feel it’s like talking about ‘paper time’ to summarize (any) reading, painting, handicrafts, etc. It makes no sense to focus on the medium only and ignore the content.
