PD Session: Shut the Chromebook! A Discussion about Avoiding Digital Fatigue

Presented by Paul Moffitt

Last presented on October 19, 2015 as part of the Sylvania Fall Inservice Day; Next presentation to be announced!

From the ad: “Are your students tired of the Chromebooks? Sure, every strategy becomes tiring when repeated constantly. But when do I avoid digital and turn back the clock? Join the discussion about balancing digital and non-digital work to give your students a break from the screen.”

In this session, teachers will discuss strategies for balancing digital and non-digital work to reduce “Chromebook fatigue” for students and teachers. The session will be collaborative in nature, with the session presenter leading through ideas for balancing the two sides of instructions. Session participants will learn from each other as well.
