"It's important that we help parents understand both the potential and the risks of digital media, so we can make sure kids get the best of this new world," said Jim Steyer, CEO and founder of Common Sense Media, which conducted the research. School leaders should consider how to best reach out to parents to explain how classroom use of these media skills benefits other skills, such as communicating and working with others.
