In a recent publishing by Scientific American, studies showed that the average 8 year old is spending nearly 8 hours of their 24 hour day using technology. It is important for our students to be informed on how to properly and safely use computers and the internet. This month's focus on Digital Health and Wellness will focus on Ergonomics (safe use of a computer), Internet Addiction and Online Safety.

This month's technology focus is a little different, in that it is more directed toward educating ourselves and parents as to what precautions we can take to help our kids keep a good balance when using technology.
