Too young for technology?

An interesting episode of the Tonight show aired on ITV last week which posits the question how young is too young for technology? Read the corresponding article here.

The research conducted by Professor Manfred Spitzer  indicates that there is a disparity between the use of technology in toddlers and their developing brains. However the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) in the USA offers lots of information and advice to parents and teachers as to the benefits of using technology with youngsters and how best to introduce it to the classroom.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the matter: do you believe technology is beneficial in moderation or have you cause to believe tech should be restricted under a certain age? Leave us a message below with your views.
