This short video is a reminder of the effects of social media on our society. By connecting online….we are essentially disconnecting offline…
What are we missing from life as a result..?? What critical moments do we miss that we didn’t even know passed us by..??
This is a timely reminder that we, as teachers, ensure our ‘digital native’ students are taught to balance their technology and lives……to encourage ‘digital blurring’ for a greater learning experience…..but to also encourage them to ‘switch off’, and enjoy what life can offer….
