Episode 26: Your brain on screen use, Captain Underpants, and children's digital rights in the UN

Transcript

No transcript...

This show takes us deep into something of central concern to Kim’s work as a psychiatrist: what do we know about the effects of disordered screen use on the brain? The review is of a fun movie that’s great for kids aged 8 and up; and we catch up on what’s happening with children’s international human rights as digital citizens.

What have you noticed about the effect on your concentration or decision-making when you’re on a screen a lot? Do you think there should be limits to children’s ‘human right’ to go online? And have you seen Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie?

Zooming Out: For the UN General Assembly Resolution on the Rights of the Child in the Digital Environment, we’ve had trouble finding a stable link. If you’re interested in getting a copy, email us at outsidethescreenpod[at]gmail.com, and we can send it to you. Or you can search for it on the UN Official Document System, using the full-text term ‘promotion and protection of the rights of children’ and the date 8 November 2023. (But actually, emailing us will probably be simpler.)
