Technology, Kids, and Reading
A year or two ago, when a friend of mine returned from traveling in Japan, he told me that students in Japan’s public schools wear uniforms, so it was easy for my friend to spot them on the street. He noticed that as students waited on the street corner for their busses, no one spoke. The children didn’t look at one another, nor did they even seem to be aware of the others surrounding them. How could they? Each had his or her own electronic device in hand and were looking down at them.
