In the U.S. people spend an average of 444 minutes looking at some form of a screen. this includes watching TV, using a laptop or computer, looking at a smart phone, or using a tablet. Is this a good stat? I don't think so even though the amount of time I spend in front of a screen is probably just as high. No wonder our students are bored in class. No wonder drivers are distracted. No wonder people eating out for dinner spend more time looking at their phones than talking to each other. Unfortunately the reality is that "screen time" will not be reduced and will in fact increase in the future. Just wait till we all have "smart-glasses" or "smart-wearables". We will always have a screen inches away that we can look at. Till someone figures out how to download things straight to our brains, we are going to all spend way to much time infront of a screen.
What do you think?
