The internet is leaving children brain-dead

• dailymail
 

Trevor Baylis, who invented the wind-up radio, said children are losing creativity and practical skills because they spend too much time in front of screens.

The 75-year-old said he fears that the next generation of inventors is being lost, with young people often unable to make anything with their hands.
 

But he said children could rediscover vital skills if schools used Meccano and other practical toys.

Mr Baylis said: 'Children have got to be taught hands-on, and not to become mobile phone or computer dependent.

They are dependent on Google searches. A lot of kids will become fairly brain-dead if they become so dependent on the internet, because they will not be able to do things the old-fashioned way.'
