Come up with a way to display information so that the eyes do not strain and do not get ill. It is a big problem of today for about 500 millions of people, intensively using smartphones and computers.
Providing such a device or method, children will be able to do computer games for many hours in a day without any harm to health! That's what many of them really love to do.
This will allow all school subjects to be made in the form of computer games (including multiplayer!) as well as attention-catching videos to be produced by the best teachers, from whom children like to learn, no need to be forced! Choose the best: teachers, producers, actors, game authors. Games and the devices on which they are played should stimulate the whole body to be active. This will allow physical development, not only intellectual.
Then we can create an integral system of school education from A to Z without human teachers and visiting a school. Coupled with a system of distant and automated control and help to children, this will save a lot of money for school eduction.
As for social development, virtual reality (suppose, it will be safe for health, allowing to be in it all through the day) will give cheap or free opportunity to get social and communicational skills. Children may be trained both with human peers and by Artificial Intelligence playing for a peer.
For the first step: how to make electronic games to be fully safe for eyes even for children?

I found a paper saying that VR could be better for the eyes than regular phone screens. Although it was just a hypothesis, maybe there is some potential. With VR technology getting improved every day, maybe soon we'll have a way how the eyes can be trained while we play video games!

This sounds like people think about it and try to produce such a device.

This might sound a bit counterintuitive but I don't think there is any 'hard evidence' that shows a causal effect of digital screen usage on children's eyes. There are a few associative studies like this one, but this study too concludes that only 0-1-year-old children's eye health seemed to associate with the screen exposure time. More than damage to the eye, there seems to be a more robust association between screen time and behavioural disorders, mood swings and anxiety among children. This, I don't think has anything to do with the 'quality' of devices or the screens, rather it has a lot to do with the quality of the content these children are exposed to. The technology is hence not the problem. We should probably focus more on the information itself rather than its presentation.

Mikhail Korsanov It would be a very strong claim to state that there is a 'pandemic' of myopia due to smartphones and notebooks. There is virtually NO evidence for that. I tried to dig into the scientific literature for the supposed causation and found that not a single study exists that has proven a direct effect of smartphone (or screen) usage on eye health. Take this very recent meta-analytical study from the Lancet, the most reputed journal when it comes to medicine. The paper clearly states in its conclusion "Smart device exposure might be associated with an increased risk of myopia. Research with objective measures of screen time and myopia-related outcomes that investigates smart device exposure as an independent risk factor is required.". Keywords from this conclusion: might be associated. 'Might be' does not equate to 'is'. Even if you consider the two phenomena associated, this is a very well understood notion in the scientific method that 'correlation does not prove causation'. What this suggests, rather, is that there are other many factors that might be causing the rise in the incidence of myopia. To cite one finding, the prevalence of myopia is two folds higher in East Asians than in the white people in the same age group . If smartphones would be the reason, this data would simply not be there because smartphone/digital technology usage in the west is definitely higher than in these eastern nations. This is just one example. Lifestyle, diet, changing environment and many other factors might be the cause of eye-related disorders. Relegating the cause to the usage of digital screens would simply be naive and irresponsible as far as I know.

Subash Chapagain Why then myopia is pandemic nowadays when smartphones and notebooks are everywhere? Just coincidence?

Set a timer for the device to switch off. The user can switch it back on after an hour so that their eyes get a break.
