What People are Saying About This
“Bravo to Joe Clement and Matt Miles, two savvy and experienced teachers, for masterfully pulling back the veil of the tech-in- the-classroom hoax.”
"Clement and Miles succinctly lay out the compelling evidence against filling our classrooms with weapons of mass distraction and then tell us how to fix the damage already inflicted. This book is mandatory reading for teachers and parents alike."
"A sobering exposure of the damage wrought by constant screen exposure on developing brains. These veteran teachers refute the over–promised claims of Ed–Tech peddlers, and show us why screens undermine learning and leave kids unable to think on their own."
"An urgent wake-up call for anyone interested in how screen use in schools is damaging kids and education."
"With striking clarity, Screen Schooled reveals why an education increasingly centered around digital devices is failing our children. Two veteran teachers, Clement and Miles, expertly illuminate the need to teach kids problem solving, critical thinking, and other skills demanded in today’s economy. Get this must-read book!"
