AUBURN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Arguably, kids ages 3 to 18 are part of the most tech-savvy generation we've ever seen.

Time Magazine reports that 27 percent of this age group uses tablets, 43 percent use smartphones, and 52 percent use laptops. As our schools try to keep up with the technological demands, so do parents, and integrating these devices both in the home and the classroom poses its challenges.

This new territory for schools is forcing parents to raise their kids in a way that no generation of parents has done before.
