Not all learners have access to technology.

New technologies can pose problems to future generations while on the other hand, they broaden horizons and opportunities. According to a survey teenagers are playing outside, and getting enough sleep much less than their parents did. 79 percent of adults said they read books when they were younger compared to 54 percent of teenagers who read books now.

Key Takeaways:

1

2
That trend is a cause for concern among many who have watched the numbers change. The medical industry is watching with interest as the trend unfolds.

Parents can encourage their young teens to get more sleep in the future. They can set rules about indoor time and think about what changes to make.
