Our children are connected to electronics today like no other generation in history.
We aim for our students to be productive and responsible users of technology, but what can we do as parents and educators to make sure the content they are exposed to is age appropriate? That’s where the Entertainment Software Rating Board (otherwise known as the ESRB) comes into play. The ESRB is the non-profit, self-regulatory body that assigns ratings for video games and apps so parents can make informed choices. If you would like more information about the ESRB, please visit the ESRB website to get professional insight on many of the games your children are using on their Nintendos, PlayStations, Xboxes, and mobile devices. Speaking of mobile devices, there’s even a free app for your phone called Video Game Ratings by ESRB. Just search for ESRB in your phone’s App Store!
