The Impact Of Digital Media On Children's Health

International Research Conference Draws Multi disciplinary Body of Experts to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y., Oct. 8, 2018 — (PRNewswire) — Almost half of all teens are consistently online. Children as young as babies are constantly entertained by tablets, phones, and other digital devices. What will be the long-term impact of sustained screen time on children's mental and physical health and how will it be effectively measured? How do we expand knowledge and hone research methodologies to improve understanding of risk and benefits?

Renowned experts from the National Institutes of Health and leading academic and research Institutions, nationally and abroad, will present at the Second Congress on Digital Media and Developing Minds. The conference, co-sponsored by Children and Screens: Institute of Digital Media and Child Development and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, will be held on Oct. 15-18, 2018 at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

Fake news, internet addiction, cognition, privacy, cyberbullying, digital media and relationships, the links between social media, violence, depression and suicide, and technology in schools will be among the topics addressed by leading neuroscientists, clinicians, social and data scientists, psychologists and educators as well as members of the media.

Children and Screens: Institute of Digital Media and Child Development is a nonprofit organization devoted to maximizing children's health benefits and minimizing risks from digital media through interdisciplinary dialogue, public information, and rigorous, objective research bridging the medical, neuroscientific, social science, education and academic communities. See the Congress agenda here.

    The Internet and different gadgets play a significant role in children development. I've done some research and have found interesting content at https://studyhippo.com/internet-influence-on-children/, which illustrated the effects of technologies on kids. I think that all these devices can be helpful in learning if you know how to use it properly. In this essay example database, everyone can find some useful information.
