Starting this year, the morning drop off zone in the gymnasium is a technology-free zone. Students have ten to fifteen minutes each morning to line up with their classmates in order to arrive at class together. During this time we encourage students to interact together using face-to-face communication. The use of computers, iPads and smartphones is not permitted. Let’s start the day on a friendly positive note! Technology will be permitted as a learning resource throughout the day in dedicated learning areas facilitated by a teacher.
Where are your technology free zones in your home? What rules and regulations does your family have regarding technology this year? Steven Woda, CEO and advocate from uKnow internet mobile and security, can assist you in identifying your family’s tech-free zones. In addition, the Family Online Institute offers family online safety contracts in order to establish safe ground rules and etiquette for positive technological experiences.
