Media Balance & Well-Being
All students will learn about Media Balance & Well-Being in Fall 2020. For additional information, please review the document and links below.
While many lessons include videos to support instruction, we are highlighting three from this strand to share with families. Each video - included in our Kindergarten, 8th grade, and 12th grade lessons, may be applicable to our daily lives as parents, grandparents, and guardians. We cannot under-estimate the importance of media balance and time away from devices, especially given online learning and daily news cycles that may impact our well-being. We urge families to consider the quality, content, and purpose of "screen time," however, rather than simply counting minutes their children are looking at devices. For further ideas about screen time, view the third video below and talk with you family about it.
