Overview:

Whether it's watching TV or playing on a tablet, using tech can be super fun! Often, kids find it hard to transition from an online activity to an offline one. Teach your students a simple routine for how to manage those inevitable digital interruptions that are part of everyone's lives in the digital age. By examining feelings associated with being asked to stop doing something we enjoy, students will learn that it is respectful and kind to be mindful of the requests of others. 
 
Students will be able to:
  • Learn why it's important to be aware and respectful of people while using devices.
  • Learn the Pause, Breathe, Finish Up routine as a self-regulation strategy for transitioning from technology to face-to-face interactions.
