Will more screen time have a negative impact on our students?  

Posted by:

The technology will allow for the creation of new tasks previously inconceivable. 

Media used by teens identifies four main categories of screen time.

  • Passive consumption: watching TV, reading, and listening to music
  • Interactive consumption: playing games and browsing the Internet
  • Communication: video-chatting and using social media
  • Content creation: using devices to make digital art, or music

Our goal is to limit unnecessary screen time and utilize technology when it is educationally appropriate.
