Technology is a big part of teaching and learning at WIS. My blog posts show how we use technology at school and give tips on how to stay safe and cope with technology at home. Typically, we want our students to think of technology as a tool rather than a toy. We are big on content creation. We want students to be creators of content rather than consumers. We want them to use technology responsibly at home as digital citizens. How do we draw the boundaries? What is screen time?
The article; How much screen time is ok for my kids by Common Sense media may help us understand what screen time is and how much is enough. Common Sense media is an organisation that empowers parents, teachers, and policymakers by providing unbiased information, trusted advice, and innovative tools to help them harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all kids’ lives.
