Technology and the Teenage Brain
By Youth Development Today • Issue #15 • View online
What do we know about the impact of technology on the teenage brain? We know enough to worry and ask critical questions, but we lack conclusive research studies to provide clear answers to all those questions and to develop definitive approaches and strategies. There is enough knowledge, however, to support recommendations that can guide parents, educators, and other caring adults to help adolescents navigate technology. There’s also common sense.
A recent editorial in Lancet argues that “children and adolescents have the most to gain and are most at risk from digital technologies.” As adults, we have a critical role to play — a responsibility to ask questions and educate ourselves so that we have the knowledge and skills to guide, support, and learn from our children and youth.
