This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro-4-9-21: Keeping Kids Safe Online

Written by

While many parents have been worried that increased screen time and app use could be harmful to their kids; there have been no large scale scientific studies that could prove whether or not that is true. But now, there is a push in Congress to make that happen.

16th District Ohio Republican Congressman, Anthony Gonzalez is co-sponsoring a bill aimed at understanding the effect of technology on children.

The CAMRA Act would commission the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to do a study the effects of mobile devices, computers, social media, and online applications on children, as well as TV, movies, artificial intelligence, video games, virtual, and augmented reality.
