In his ethics course, Neil Gorsuch banned the use of laptops. Here is the analysis of that by lawyer-journalist, Kathryn Rubino, on Abovethelaw.com.
In that initiative, Gorsuch demonstrates he is in-touch with the research about the impacts of digital. Findings hammer that the digital connection can impede absorption of material in classrooms, atrophy social skills and impede emotional development.
Some of that is explained in the recent book "Glow Kids" by Nicholas Kardaras, Ph.D. Here you can order the book from Amazon.
The negative effects of being digital first can be as severe as addiction. Young players of video games are experiencing that. Some wind up in a psychosis. They are unable to "exit" the game.
Interestingly, Kardaras points out that Steve Jobs didn't allow his children near digital. Home life was centered on real-life conservations about history and politics. Only as the children matured did Jobs and other leaders in Silicon Valley clear the moat of alligators and raised the drawbridge for entrance into digital platforms.
