New Tech City Talks Parenting in the Digital Age

Thursday July 25 2024 • 1:47am - 1:47am ET

New Tech City's Manoush Zomorodi hosts a discussion on parenting with tech, live in The Greene Space

Between tablets, cell phones, video games and computers, the minutes of daily screen time the average child logs in can quickly add up to hours.

But is there a way to limit screen time while also giving kids the tools to compete in a global economy? Where do tech gadgets and digital media fit into effective and caring parenting? And how can we protect kids from online predators and cyberbullies?

On Wednesday, March 26, New Tech City‘s Manoush Zomorodi hosted a conversation about how to raise healthy, thoughtful and confident kids in the digital age. She was joined by Dr. Susan Linn, co-founder and director of The Campaign for a Commercial-Free ChildhoodJoel Levin, co-founder of the games-based education nonprofit MinecraftEduWendy Kelly, of the consciously low-tech Rudolf Steiner School, America’s first Waldorf school; and Matt Smith, director of Camp Longacre in Newport, PA, where campers can use their smartphones, iPads and other tech gadgets all summer long.
