This lesson meets standards for CASEL, AASL and ISTE.

Technology use isn't always a distraction, but there are definitely times when it's best to keep devices away. Help students learn when it's appropriate to use technology and when it's not -- and practice making family rules for device-free time at home.

Students will be able to:
  • Recognize the ways in which digital devices can be distracting.
  • Identify how they feel when others are distracted by their devices.
  • Identify ideal device-free moments for themselves and others.
