The Team at Screen Free Toys are a group of parents, educators and administrators who recommend a screen-free life for a large portion of a childs life at home, especially in the early childhood.
We know that technology can be a wonderful tool for teaching, learning, and boosting productivity, however, technology has a long history of promising more than it delivers in education.
The hype of educational technology dates back to the 1800s, when educators were encouraged to use “magic lanterns” (early slide projectors illuminated with candles or oil lamps) to engage students—followed by the film projector, laser discs, CDs, and now laptops, tablets, and iPads. Sadly, while such devices have syphoned millions of pounds from education budgets, none has been a gateway to academic excellence. At the same time, study after study warns of the harm technology and media use pose for children, particularly during the early years of critical brain development. While neural networks are being established, children need to experience and interact with real people and the real world—not screens.
Ask experts what 21st century skills young adults need, and you won’t find “computers” or “technology” at the top of the list. Instead you’ll see things like collaboration and teamwork, creativity and imagination, critical thinking, problem solving, and flexibility and adaptability.Screen Free Toys sources toys and educational products that are beautifully designed to cultivate all of these essential capacities in children.Our toys bring learning to life that are engaging without the use of computers. We recommend free play with educationally enriched toys, outdoor exploration, reading, crafts, games, dinnertime conversation, and other healthy, developmentally appropriate activities. Our “unplugged” approach is backed not only by current research, but by the hundreds of thoughtful, creative, successful children that lead a proportionally large screen free life.We add toys and educational products all the time, so please keep checking back!
