• Make smarter choices about their technology usage

  • Help students develop Digital Leadership skills

Are your students managing their digital lifestyle effectively?

Young people use so many different forms of technology every single day - to communicate with friends and family, to learn new things and to be creative in their spare time. But have they ever really sat down to evaluate their technology use to determine which uses are making them feel good - and which ones are negatively impacting or causing them stress?

I created the TechClever Students course to help students evaluate their own technology and consider how it is positively and negatively impacting their life.

The course itself is focused on the latest technology, digital lifestyle factors and current technological trends which I update regularly. This means when discussing technology, the course is more relevant to real situations facing students today.

When students take the time to examine their own technology use, they can break through social trends and start seeing technology as a choice and a tool that impacts them both for the better and for the worse. It fosters better communication about technology for the better.
