A Guide for Students, Schools and Families


Digital Wellness means more than limiting screen time

Technology continues to evolve rapidly and it has become intricately woven into the fabric of daily life for all of us. Of course, that comes with a balance of positive and negative implications for our well-being, some of which we don’t yet fully understand. As such, we recognize the growing need and shared responsibilities we all hold to support each learner to develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions required to lead healthy, happy and productive lives in an increasingly digital world.

The above considerations are suggested practices that support digital health and wellness for students, staff and our extended community. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list, but rather, this information reflects a wide array of current readings and research as well as the lived experiences and voices of our students, staff and families.
