Technology & Student Health: the FEAR, the REALITY, the FIX

I had the amazing opportunity to be part of an Ignite session with 9 other ASCD Emerging Leaders this past weekend at the Empower 2019 conference in Chicago, Illinois. Each of us focused our talk on one of the five Tenets of the Whole Child from ASCD. My tenets were SAFE and HEALTHY.

According to the official Ignite organization, an Ignite talk is defined as:

  • a series of presentation that happen one after another without breaks
  • each presenter uses 20 slides
  • each slide auto-advances after 15 second
  • the result is 5 minutes and high energy!

Watch my 5 minute Ignite below. Let me know what you think in the comments. And contact me if you want me to visit your school to work with parents, students, and teachers on health, wellness, and technology use.
