Sleep Hygiene? What does this have to do with technology? Actually, the answer is everything.
Defending the last hour of sleep is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your family. In Learning Technologies we are strong proponents of the effective use of technology. This does not mean staying up late playing video games and accessing social media. Access to the blue light of screens should be limited to an hour before sleep. The lack of sleep can be insidious. Over time it can create a sleep deficit that results in a cognitive deficit and an inability to concentrate. Have your kids read a book instead and get some sleep so that they can get back to al the effective use of technology that we promote!
