In this TED Talk, we get to hear 9-year-old Luke Bakic's take on how technology is taking over children's lives. He makes a point that children are known to now be on screens for up to six and a half hours per day at times. Luke stresses that this is detrimental to young people and that they should pick up a book and read more. He wants children to read more because he has seen the change in his own life, his own improvements in vocabulary, and his excellent test scores in school. I think what he has to say is definitely important. It's a perspective from someone who is directly suffering from the situation, which I always think is important to listen to.
