Healthy Device Practices at Home

Question:

How can I support healthy device use and limits at home?

Answer:

A digital device in the home can be a wonderful thing for the whole family to extend learning beyond the school day.  The family can record special moments to send to family far away, or FaceTime Grandma into a special birthday dinner.  We hope that these learning devices will serve as learning devices for the entire family, once the students’ assignments are complete, of course.

We encourage families to be open with each other and to talk regularly about how the device can and will be a useful item in the household – and not one more burden.

We encourage families to utilize Common Sense Media resources for starting and continuing high quality conversations at home.  Some of our favorite resources from their collection are linked here.
