Lots of children are not getting enough rest and not sleeping properly because of technology - according to a new study by education experts in America.

It says that in some countries as many as two thirds of 9 and 10-year-olds are being kept awake because of things like mobile phones, consoles and computers.

The international survey by Boston College, says lack of proper sleep can have an impact on children's education as kids might find it more difficult to concentrate if they are tired.

In the study, researchers asked kids in 50 countries about their sleep patterns.

They found that, on average, almost half (47%) of primary school kids didn't get enough sleep.

America has the biggest problem - where nearly three quarters of 9 and 10-year-olds taking part in tests were affected by a lack of sleep.

But kids from England weren't too far behind - with 64% not getting enough kip. Ireland was also in the top ten worst countries for sleep, while Wales and Scotland weren't part of the study.

Other well-off countries like Australia, New Zealand and Finland also had lots of sleep-deprived kids.
