Limited Capacity filling up

73% of teens have access to a smartphone. 24% say they are online “almost constantly.” And, 50% report feeling “addicted” to their personal device (Pew Research). It has also been shown that students who spend more time on social media than their peers have a greater likelihood of being unhappy, getting less sleep, and performing worse on tests. The increasing rates of depression among adolescents are especially worrisome among young women (Journal of Pediatrics). As it turns out, the happiest teens use their phones between 0-2 hours per day (iGen). Unfortunately, tech companies are failing our youth and are in no hurry to make their products less addicting. So how can we teach students to find the right balance?
During the fall of 2017, the AP Statistics class at the Academy of Our Lady of Peace in San Diego partnered with Live Offline, an organization that helps individuals adopt healthy habits for phone usage. The goal of this partnership was to challenge students to reconnect with the real world by adopting an offline activity of their choice to practice daily for two weeks. The offline-challenge project was completed individually by each student and consisted of four phases: self-assessment, activity selection, implementation (a 14-day challenge in which the students practiced their activity on a daily basis), and self-reflection.
This workshop will help educators adopt and adapt the offline-challenge project for themselves and their students. Attendees will select and/or design offline habits to complete on their own over a two-week span. Further, attendees will be provided with time and support (lesson materials, assessment tools, rubrics, and in-person consultation) to produce structured projects for their students. All workshop attendees will be encouraged to submit project outlines to Live Offline and will receive complimentary project support from Live Offline during the school year.
