Editorial Reviews

Review

Screen Schooled is the most vivid, intelligent, and compelling book I have yet seen on what technology is doing for, and to, our schools.” —Jay Mathews, author of Work Hard. Be Nice. How Two Inspired Teachers Created the Most Promising Schools in America


“A sobering exposure of the damage wrought by constant screen exposure on developing brains. These veteran teachers show us why screens undermine learning and leave kids unable to think on their own.” —Richard E. Cytowic, MD, professor of neurology at George Washington University and author of the “The Fallible Mind” column at PsychologyToday.com


“With striking clarity, Screen Schooled reveals why an education increasingly centered around digital devices is failing our children.” —Richard Freed, PhD, author of Wired Child: Reclaiming Childhood in a Digital Age


"In this astute exposé, teachers and education bloggers Clement and Miles team up to draw attention to what they see as the overuse of technology in education." —Publishers Weekly 


“I am deluged with education books, but this one was hard to put down."—The Washington Post


"An urgent wake-up call based on first-hand experience for anyone interested in how screen use in schools is damaging kids and education." —Susan Greenfield, author of Mind Change: How Digital Technologies Are Leaving Their Mark on Our Brains


“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.” —Mark Bauerlein, author of The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future (Or, Don’t Trust Anyone Under 30)


“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.” —Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, author of Glow Kids: How Screen Addiction Is Hijacking Our Kids—and How to Break the Trance


"Screen Schooled deserves the careful consideration of educational professionals everywhere, and is highly recommended."—Midwest Book Review

5.0 out of 5 stars What You Need to Know about Screens and Your Children's Education
By Lou Hunley on August 13, 2018
How have children changed in the last ten years? Anyone who has addressed or observed groups of children lately notice that our youth are less attentive. It’s harder to make eye contact. They have more trouble falling directions. They fidget. They want to lie on the floor instead of sitting up straight. Could constant exposure to screens be causing this problem?

Joe Clement and Matt Miles have teamed up to produce an important wake-up call for parents. Their book, “Screen School: Two Veteran Teachers Expose How Technology Use is Making Our Kids Dumber” is a must read for anyone concerned about our children's future.

Clement and Miles believe that most of our children are technology addicts. While they are adept at locating facts, they lack creative thinking, problem solving, and social skills. They include lots of research and practical teaching experience to back up their claims.

Clement and Miles offer practical advice for parents. Each chapter ends with practical advice for parents. They recommend limiting screen time in the home and encouraging parents to advocate for the best education for their children.

While other books* are tackling this topic, "Screen Schooled" gives the perspective of two public school insiders. They allow us to see firsthand how screens are impacting the students in their lives. They have inside information on the school system that can help parents advocate for the best education for their children.

“Screen Schooled” makes for an enjoyable read. At times, it feels like a chat with your child’s favorite teacher. Clement and Miles have a heart for their students. They offer practical advice for the classroom as well as the home.

*”Glow Kids,” Nicholas Kardaras,” IGen”,-Jean Twinge, “Disconnected,” Tom Kersling are other books about children and screens.
