Guests: Joanne Ashe, Journeys in Film’s Founder and Executive Director; Eileen Mattingly, Journeys in Film’s Director of Education With smart phones, tablets and computers nearly ubiquitous now, kids are spending more time with a screen than ever–watching videos, playing games, or messaging. It’s a source of concern for parents.
