Screen Time Position Statement
Department of Technology & Innovation
Technology is prevalent in today’s world, culture, and business and the state of technology has evolved over the recent years where it is now more accessible and more ingrained into our daily lives. We believe in fostering technological proficiencies, leveraging these tools for learning, and developing digital literacies that are necessary to be a responsible digital citizen. As technology shifts, we also acknowledge the nature of contemporary technologies whereas digital information is consumed and processed differently than traditional mediums, dis-information, mis-information, and mal-information abound, and where some technologies can be addictive by design. This asks us to consider the effects of technology on the developing brain and to be thoughtful about technology usage and education across different age levels while meeting our instructional and technological goals.
