Book Title: Beyond Remote-Controlled Childhood: Teaching Children in the Media Age
Publisher: National Association for the Education of Young Children
Author: Diane E. Levin
More and more of children's attitudes, values, interests, and behavior run the risk of being controlled by their experiences with the popular media culture and screens instead of being actively created by children themselves. That is, childhood is becoming increasingly remote controlled. Learn how to counteract the potentially harmful impact media can have on both the process and content of children's development and learning, and how to help families make informed decisions about the screen media in children's lives.
