Reduce TV/Screen Time with this Tip

This entry was posted in News on by .

Is your child spending countless hours in front of a TV or tablet? Do you wish that your child would spend their time doing other things such as playing outside, reading or doing homework and chores?

Have them “buy” their screen time instead. For every one minute they would like to spend in front of the TV or tablet, they must spend one minute doing an activity of your choice such as homework, playing outside, chores or reading. They will need to purchase their time with these minutes. Time doing these things at school does not count and banking time from a previous day does not work either. Time must be used on day it’s earned.

Give it a try! You may be pleasantly surprised with the results!

Technology in Classrooms has many Benefits

This entry was posted in News on by .

Classrooms look very different today than they did twenty years ago. When you walk into a classroom today you would notice students using technology. Some may be on their Smartphone, a Chromebook or a tablet. You will notice that students are engaged and having fun.

There are many benefits to using technology in the classroom. The first benefit is an increase in student motivation. Today’s generation is excited about using technology and catch on very quickly. Another benefit is that students are able to take a more active role in their education. Very rarely do students just sit in their chair and listen to a teacher lecture. Technology gives teachers the ability to draw students in and involve them in learning. Technology allows students to collaborate with peers as they work on many technology-based projects.

East Guernsey is taking advantage of this great tool by exposing students’ grades k-12 to a variety of technology-based experiences. With technology in the classroom, the possibilities are endless.
