We live in an attention-deficient, hectic, technology-riddled society, but we can fight the tide of clickbait and soundbites by using technology’s tools to foster learning and mental acuity.
In a misguided effort to raise the bar, we are depriving our children of many of the experiences they need to develop healthy, open minds, and a love of learning.
