Fall 2018 Parents Symposia

Topic: A Healthy Balance: Creating flexible structures for educational and recreational technology at Eaglebrook

This year’s Parent Symposia at Country Fair focused on the school's work on evolving a thoughtful, responsive approach to student use of technology to teach the Core Skills, communicate, and appropriately entertain with the need to set and uphold sensible, age-appropriate limitations. We were able to share the value of technology through examples of current classwork as well as discuss the policies we have set into place to support recreational use.
 
The discussions within each Form reflected the complexity inherent in balancing this opportunity for learning, and also helped to clarify the importance of the partnership between the school, students, and parents in this endeavor. The school continues to remain committed to refining and improving our policies as our understanding and experience grow, and to sharing resources that may be useful in continuing this dialogue.
