"An urgent wake-up call for anyone interested in how screen use in schools is damaging kids and education."

  “‘Screen Schooled’ is breathtaking.”

"It is the most vivid, intelligent and compelling book I have yet seen on what technology is doing for, and to, our schools. Clement and Miles do not dismiss computer screens. They are young enough to understand how the new devices work and how they can help teaching. But they are also excellent writers who dramatically reveal out often electronics interfere with understanding. Don't miss the story of why the political cartoon lesson worked better on big sheets of paper than on Powerpoint."

“will provide them with clarity and confidence”

"Joe Clement and Matt Miles lay out a pressing truth that runs squarely against the hype of education technology: screens are not the key to achievement.  They are a glossy distraction from the real intellectual work of learning.  All parents who are dismayed by the dominance of technology in their kids' lives struggle with the fear that they are out-of-touch and old-fashioned.  They should read this book.  It will provide them with clarity and confidence.  They are absolutely right to want to reduce "screen schooling."

“A sobering exposure of the damage”

"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."

"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."  

As two veteran teachers who have taught thousands of students, Joe Clement and Matt Miles have seen firsthand how damaging technology overuse and misuse has been to our students. Rather than becoming better problem solvers, kids look to Google to answer their questions for them. Rather than deepening students’ intellectual curiosity, educational technology is too often cumbersome and distracting, causing needless frustration and greatly extending homework time. Rather than becoming the great equalizer, electronic devices are widening the achievement gap. On a mission to educate and empower parents, Clement and Miles provide many real-world examples and cite multiple studies showing how technology use has created a wide range of cognitive and social deficits in our young people. They lift the veil on what’s really going on at school: teachers who are powerless to curb cell phone distractions; zoned-out kids who act helpless and are unfocused, unprepared, and antisocial; administrators who are too-easily swayed by the pro-tech “science” sponsored by corporate technology purveyors. They provide action steps parents can take to demand change and make a compelling case for simpler, smarter, more effective forms of teaching and learning.
