Media Balance is Important

The SK class are continuing to learn about digital citizenship. A part of digital citizenship is being able to balance your screen time. In class they learned a song called ‘Media Balance is Important’ and read the book ‘Unplugged’ by Steve Antony.

Unplugged is about a character named Blip. Blip loves being plugged into her computer. When a blackout occurs, Blip trips over her wire and tumbles outside. Suddenly, Blip’s grey world is filled with colour and excitement. She plays with her new friends and has adventures all day long. When Blip finally returns home, she realizes that the world can be even brighter once you unplug.

 

The students really enjoyed the song and book! They learned how being ‘unplugged’ gives new experiences and adventures they wouldn’t have otherwise and how important it is to get outside and enjoy the nature and fresh air our beautiful earth has to offer! They also brainstormed some ideas on how they can ‘unplug’ followed by a digital drawing!
