The Device Conundrum

 

As parents, we may grapple daily with the device conundrum. Do our kids spend too much time on their phones? Are they able to engage socially without their phones?

I recently saw a student with his head buried in his device. As I approached, I noticed he wasn’t engaging in social media or texting friends. He was watching a video showing him how to apply the order of operations.

He then put his phone down in order to solve a math problem.

In moments like these, I realize that they can sometimes be a powerful tool for our kids. 

 

How often should our kids be using their devices?

How should they be using their devices?

How can we as adults help students to better use their devices?
