TEDxRainier – Dimitri Christakis – Media and Children

Brief (16 min) compelling discussion of research detailing the long term affect of media exposure on the developing brains of very young children.

This is great for professionals and parents.  The video could be shown to start a parent education event or sent as a link in an email or newsletter.

I wonder if he knows about Montessori?

  1. This is definitely an incredibly interesting TED talk, and I think you hit the nail on the head with the timing of when to show it. I’ll recommend it to parents at our school as well as link to it in our Montessori Resources section so that our teachers can take a look. Thanks!
