Screen-Free Learning at School and Home

As our world becomes increasingly digital, it can be difficult for teachers and parents to encourage students to disconnect and turn off their electronic devices. While it’s certainly important that students are computer literate, and perhaps even have a basic understanding of coding, too much screen-time can be detrimental to their learning. Instead, children, especially older children, should have a mixture of technology-based and screen-free learning.

Benefits of Screen-Free Learning

Research shows that encouraging students to spend time away from technology improves their relationships with classmates and school adults, leading to better communication and more face-to-face interactions. Teachers should also work with parents to limit screen-time at home as this can result in students getting more sleep as well as exercise during their “off time”. So, when students return to school they’ll be refreshed, recharged and ready to learn.
