Yet when researchers at Oxford University quizzed , year-olds about their wellbeing and compared it to screen time, they found the use of gadgets had a positive impact. Intelligent use of computers can enhance the life of teenagers but overall they are spending vastly too much time online Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice-Chancellor, University of Buckingham The researchers say that digital connectivity may enhance creativity, communication skills and development and conclude there is little to support fears that spending time on digital devices is harmful.
