City Visions explores the ways that digital media use by school-aged children may be changing how they perform in the classroom.  Are students losing their ability to focus as a result of spending so much time online? Or does digital entertainment provide positive tools to boost students’ creativity and motivation? Host Joseph Pace and guests discuss a study that examined these questions and more.

Guests:

Vicky Rideout, President of VJR Consulting

Caroline Knorr, Parenting Editor for Common Sense Media

Roni Habib, social studies teacher and tech coordinator at Gunn High School in Palo Alto
