ScreenSense is a local community resource for families and educators who are creating a path to healthy tech use.
Imagine Mill Valley with…
Improved healthy tech use for ALL ages
Less unrestricted smartphone use by kids and teens
More unplugged activities and relationships
What is Healthy Tech Use?
Productive creation > passive consumption
High quality, age-appropriate content
Digital mentorship by parents and educators
Not too much, done mostly together
This bar chart shows the number of Mill Valley children whose parents have pledged to wait until (at least!) 8th grade for an unrestricted smartphone.
