One-to-One at Home: A Parent's Guide to School Issued Laptops and Tablets

by Jason Brand
 
Managing the digital gadgets, gizmos, and games that kids already own is often a challenge, and many parents find that a school-issued 1-to-1 device further disrupts an area in which there are already conflicts. 1-to-1 devices blur the lines between school and home, between work and play, between tool and toy. Many parents could use some help in setting boundaries.

Overview

Managing the digital gadgets, gizmos, and games that kids already own is often a challenge, and many parents find that a school-issued 1-to-1 device further disrupts an area in which there are already conflicts. 1-to-1 devices blur the lines between school and home, between work and play, between tool and toy. Many parents could use some help in setting boundaries. Written from the perspective of a family therapist who works to help families get to the heart of complicated matters, this guidebook addresses the home side of 1-to-1 programs. The book gives parents the language to keep conversations on track and provides the perspectives of other adults-educators and parents- who have addressed similar challenges.

Editorial Reviews

ConnectSafely.org - Anne Collier
This book puts Jason's wise, warm-hearted, professional experience with kids and technology in the hands of parents. It walks parents through the school technology discussion, demystifying the school 1-to-1 tech adoption process so everybody can move quickly past the anxieties that naturally arise. It's collaborative; you'll find the wisdom of parents and school staff who've already 'been there.' And it embodies the respectful, whole school- community approach.
