Screen Smarts


Since the COVID-19 pandemic, problematic gaming, also known as gaming disorder, has risen among kids and teens. Today about ten percent of people who game have a video gaming addiction. Excessive gaming can hurt academic performance, relationships, and overall health.  

In response, The Massachusetts Council on Gaming and Health has developed Screen Smarts, an industry-leading toolkit for school districts and parent organizations. Programming is customizable to audience size, demographics, geography, and budget — and includes unique offerings for administrators, educators, support staff, parents, and students. 

Nationally-acclaimed experts lead Screen Smarts, identifying and addressing how individuals can foster safe, healthy practices around gaming and screen time and improve student outcomes.
