Survey on Technology Use in Canadian Children During the COVID-19 School Closures

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, Bloorview Research Institute

The researchers at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital are doing a study to better understand changes in kids' screen time since schools closed due to COVID-19 in Canada. We also want to learn how kids and families feel about technology. For this study we will ask you to complete an online survey with 29 questions. This usually takes about 10 minutes. The questions are about the technology your child uses since schools closed due to COVID-19 and how much they use different technologies. We will also ask questions about you and your family. We will NOT ask you to tell us your name or anything else that may identify you.
