A podcast about living and learning in the age of screentime. Welcome to Episode 16 of Season Two: Mental & physical health with increased screentime.
This episode is a special episode of the Technopanic Podcast in which we discuss the challenges of parenting, and teaching in a global pandemic.
We are affiliated with the Institute of Digital Media and Child Development’s Children and Screens Research Collaborative. This is an interdisciplinary group of researchers that includes doctors, psychologists, and educators like us. We reached out to the institute for expertise on health-related issues, and we had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Paul Weigle, who studies the effects of computer habits on the mental health of youth.
Paul Weigle, M.D. is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and associate medical director at Natchaug Hospital of Hartford Healthcare and is a clinical professor at UConn School of Medicine.
