Limits to Screentime & Learning About Owls

What constitutes screentime? Playing a video game? Learning Italian on Duolingo? Khan Academy (Math)? Watching a TV show? Watching a baking program? Watching a baking program AND cooking what you’re watching? Looking up a recipe online? Reading a book on a screen? Listening to a book on tape?

Charlie was sick last week and couldn’t read so I got her a few books on tape… specifically the Guardians of Ga’hoole series, which is about owls. Today she was upstairs with her friend Megan listening and when I looked I saw this on the screen… apparently whenever a new sort of owl is introduced into the series Charlie looks it up online to see a picture.

Talk about a new educational paradigm!
