Digital Detox for Schools
There is a lot of research available on dangers of digital devices and more alarmingly is that the most vulnerable members of our society are online the most!
Unlike older generations, young people have never known a time without smartphones. It’s critical that schools and educational institutions teach children how to be smart with their smart phones.
In our short history we have connected with several top international schools to discuss the implications of the digital world on the lives of children, though we at Digital Detox Asia feel much more needs to be done to address this growing rise in device related issues.
