I was just reading a Blog post by another EDC3100 student titled “How much is too much”. the post asks questions about how much time should our children spend using social networks. This is something I find myself thinking about a lot, even though I don’t have children. When I was a child we spent majority of our play time outside. We loved exploring our couple of acres and would create scenarios in our minds to make exploring more interesting. This was called using our “imagination” something I worry the future generation may forget how to do!
This issue is something that is discussed quite frequently, so I did a bit of research and found an article that talks about finding a balance between playing outdoors and using technology.
This article is definitely worth a read as it does not show bias towards one or the other, however discusses the importance of both and the importance of balancing the two.
I am a strong believer of finding balance through our life, however sometimes this can be harder than it appears.
