Screen-free days in a 1:1 school
from Edutopia (commentary)
Matthew Howell, a contributor for Edutopia, writes: "I remember the first time I proposed screen-free days in our school to some of our student leaders. It was a couple of years ago, and we were having an informal conversation during recess about the benefits of technology. I asked how they would feel if we had entire days dedicated to learning with no internet-connected devices. One of the students in the conversation, who I know to have great insights, appeared perplexed. 'Do you mean we won't use our Chromebooks for the whole day? What will we do then?' He was very concerned. It was clear that this ever-conscientious student relied on the technology to learn."
