In the following weeks the digital leaders will be collecting information from their classes regarding how much screen time each class is exposed to. They will then highlight ideas on how much is too much and what to do if they are experiencing any issues from too much exposure. They will be asking their peers what digital devices they use and what programs and applications they spend time on. The Digital Leaders will try to help them use them safely and answer any questions the children have about using digital devices.
