When it comes to a child growing up today, what, exactly is a screen? How do screens affect children? As we charge into a future certain to be full of screens, we adults owe it our children to thoughtfully entertain the question "what is a screen" and "how do they influence children?" We should explore this issue guided by what we know about child development, and let objective thought guide the discussion. At Children's Technology Review, we feel that the code behind the screen determines the function. And behind this code are people with many different intentions. Our mission is to dig deeper, to provide accurate descriptions of the apps, games and code that determines What is a Screen.
