The word "screentime" sends up red flags to parents around the world. We question how our kids are impacted, what they should be viewing, and we struggle to keep up with the latest features. But let's take a step back.
Julie Taylor started as a Pinwheel customer, and after realizing the positive effect the smartphone had on her child and others, she felt compelled to leave her corporate position at a Fortune 250 telecommunications company to support Pinwheel's growth.

As children across the country return to school in 2022, parents wonder what age they should give their kids a smartphone.
Teachers rely more and more on technology to support their students' growth. While smartphones offer a lot of great apps and sources of information, a typical device actively attempts to divert young minds into gaming or YouTube rabbit holes.

Moving fast while playing the long-game: Dane Witbeck has been known to enjoy speeds of up to 175 mph on a motorcycle, yet also enjoys growing bonsai trees in his free time.

Witbeck joins 39 others that boast achievements in areas like the nonprofit sector, state politics, agriculture and military. Georgia Tech selected each individual based on the significant contributions they made in their fields.
