October 2018 Parent Tech Survey Results

With the holidays upon us, we’re excited to offer results from the MCDS Parent Tech Survey we administered in October. The report includes data on how much screen time MCDS students get outside of school; how many have phones or tablets; how many use Snapchat and Instagram; how many play video games; and more. We've heard from many of you that this kind of contextual data is particularly valuable in making digital parenting decisions. For some parents, this is particularly valuable around the holidays, when kids might put tech-related gifts on their wish-lists, and families consider home tech rules for during the winter break.

Since each grade level comes with its own challenges and opportunities around technology, the report is organized accordingly. As always, we encourage you to explore mcdstech.org/parents, which we update regularly with carefully curated resources.
