    DescriptionI was approached by Grant Hill from the University's Press Office to write a response to an article in that newspaper where the Scottish Government's new International Council of Advisers had stated that the recent growth in the use of digital technologies, including social media and computer games, were the main reasons in the decline in reading in Scottish children.
