Dr. Ari Brown, a pediatrician in Austin, Texas, knows a thing or two about the effects of media on children. She’s the lead author of a study by the American Academy of Pediatrics on the subject, and she spoke with New Tech City host Manoush Zomordi about the pluses and minuses of the digital age for kids.

In particular, Brown touches on some of the long-term effects of kids using too much technology.

"Kids who have even one device — one electronic device — in their room, much less two or three, are getting significantly less sleep a night," Brown said.
