The NEA will compile existing resources in an online toolkit for members which will offer resources for educating students and families on balanced technology usage, and which outlines the physiological, social-emotional, and behavioral effects of screen time on children.

Rationale/Background

We’re seeing an increase of screen time in educational settings, which, when added to the high volume of screens outside of school, expose students to psychological and behavioral issues.  The NEA can help educate members and families.
