While educators are focused on facilitating remote learning for students, don’t forget about parents! Empower them to support their students at home by sharing information in new ways, such as:

  • An audio recording that parents can listen to.
  • A video that parents can watch on a smartphone, tablet or computer.
  • A collection of articles that parents can download from your school’s website or social media site.

Team up with parents to reduce recreational screen time

As more schools close and move to online learning, reducing screen time can become an even greater challenge for parents. Share information with families on the importance of reducing recreational screen time and encourage them to:

  • Set limits on recreational screen time.
  • Monitor children’s digital activity.
  • Remove televisions, computers and other digital devices from children’s rooms.
  • Establish screen-free times, such as during meals and family time.
  • Enforce a technology curfew. All screens should be turned off at least one hour before bedtime.
