"Screen Time" Book Club Starts Today--Join the Conversation!


Starting February 25, take part in a weekly asynchronous "book club" to read and discuss Lisa Guernsey's important book, "Screen Time: How Electronic Media – From Baby Videos to Educational Software – Affects Your Young Child."

This week's focus is on Chapter 1: What Exactly Is This Video Doing to My Baby's Brain?

Each week, Andrea Vernola and Melissa Depper will add a post to the Children & Technology Interest Group on ALA Connect. The post will contain discussion questions and conversation starters for one or two chapters of Lisa's book. Read or re-read and connect with other library staff who are interested in learning about digital media, children's development, and ways to help patrons navigate 21st century parenting.

Note--you do not need to be a member of the American Library Association to participate in the ALAConnect online community.  For more information on how to join this online conversation, view the original post: Children & Technology "Screen Time" Book Club
