FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Screens are designed to hook and hold your students’ attention

It’s hard to keep our students focused in the best of conditions. As an experienced middle school teacher, I know this challenge quite well!

Today, teachers have to contend with student smartphones, learning management tools, 1:1 laptop programs, and the gamification of learning in an effort to keep kids engaged. Yet nothing technological will ever be better for a child than a caring relationship with a passionate teacher.

I use surveys and up-to-date research to help your school community address your screentime challenges to provide parents and teachers with tools to combat EdTech and smartphone-fueled distractions.

Why work with Emily?

My mission is to empower parents to better understand and balance family screentime by building a Tech-Intentional™ movement.

Relationships

Before we can change anything else, we have to start with relationships. Relationships before screens, always.

Research

There is a lot of tech-funded "research" about the benefits of technology. My recommendations are rooted in the science of childhood development from independent researchers.

Balance

It’s not practical to ban technology. It is critical to find a sustainable balance that keeps our children safe and reinforces our core values.

Courage

I believe deeply in what I teach. It's why I am not afraid to speak up and fight for what is best for children, not companies.
