This lesson meets standards for CASEL, AASL and ISTE.

We often use our phones or other devices without even thinking about it. But paying closer attention to how -- and how much -- we use digital media can help us find better balance in our lives. Challenge students to truly consider how digital media adds to -- or takes away from -- their overall quality of life.

Students will be able to:
  • Explore the role that digital media plays in their lives.
  • Reflect on the positive and negative impact digital media has on them.
  • Create a personal challenge with actionable changes to improve digital well-being.
