Just one more reason…
Today let’s take a look at the why behind choosing what we call worthy books, resources and influences.
Here we’re treated to a fascinating look at and comparison of the child’s developing brain and the developing internet, in a short film courtesy of the Moxie Institute.
BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks.
I liked the reminder toward the end of the film to unplug sometimes. Our family likes to go for a walk in the woods (we like to call them hikes… they’re really just glorified strolls), make music or play board games, or card games like Uno or In a Pickle together when we’re taking a screen-break. Our new favorite family game is Telestrations, so much fun.
