Trying to answer this survey on an android phone but the radio buttons seem to be set up vertically instead of horizontally so that I can only choose one measure as 'very effective' one as 'neither effective or ineffective'. Is this intentional?
I don't think the answers really reflects my opinion.
With regard to educational screen time. DD1 has duck duck moose and the phonics apps on her android tablet. It does help her with phonics and numbers, but only if we sit with her doing it. Just like if we sit with her doing her flash cards or reading her books. If we let her play it herself, then she just game the app by random guessing until she gets the right answer! Hardly educational is it?
So I don't think the answer really is educational vs non educational screen time. Just leaving your kid watching numberjacks or playing duck duck moose is hardly educational, IMHO, even though in this survey would be classified as educational screen time.
Mostly I thought the use of tech in schools is just another tool for teaching. What might be interesting is to look at the teaching of technology, computer science and coding and why there are comparatively few pupils interested in those subjects when the demand for the skills is huge.
