Learning loss and screen time

Studies show that screen time can stunt compassion, literacy and grit. Teachers see the distressing results in dull-eyed students who fall behind. Lacking concentration and self-regulation, they labor to learn and may bully others. 

But ICMC’s proven, neuroscience-based pedagogy reverses these negative effects of screen time, accelerates learning, and enhances social-emotional learning.

The bridge to better learning is built by connecting stories on screens to stories in children’s books and lives.

Program outcomes

  • Stronger concentration, self-regulation, and persistence among students
  • Improved literacy and critical thinking skills help students make better screen-use choices
  • More empathy and social emotional learning (SEL) means more kindness and less bullying
  • Higher interest in learning overall
  • Greater responsiveness and responsibility: Students hold themselves accountable and they behave in ways consistent with school and family values
