Family Learning: The Tech Solution (Book Club)

As parents and educators, we are very aware of the digital world and the power of devices. As a school, we have committed to an "away for the day" policy in the hopes we can give students the space to engage IRL (in real life). We are finding an increasing number of conflicts and bullying situations connected to online behaviour and communication through different social media platforms. 

We would like to provide the opportunity for families to come together and "read" the book, The Tech Solution by Shimi Kang, and advocate for and with our students. Conversation will take place monthly online for 30 minutes prior to each school council meeting - you don't have to read the book to participate. 

The Tech Solution outlines all you need to know about hte short-term and potential long-term consequences of tech use. The book is available in print, e-book and on Audible. ​https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/the-tech-solution-creating-healthy/9780735239548-item.html?ikwid=the+tech+solution&ikwsec=Home&ikwidx=0#algoliaQueryId=b50bf27792f905e4443e309defbd718b​
