Tips for Supporting Technology Use at Home

Establish Routines

Create a consistent weekday schedule for your student to follow for school work, chores, and activities. This could include: wake up time, school hours, free time, meal times, bed time, etc. Creating and using a checklist is an easy way for students and families to visualize and complete daily tasks.

Create a Learning Enviroment

Identify a consistent, dedicated workspace that allows you to store learning materials, devices and supplies. Establish ground rules for using that space. For example, when and how to access the device in the learning space.

Learn the Technology

Become familiar with with the technology products and systems that you and your student will access and use. Technologies such Canvas, SkywardClever and ParentSquare are used in Canyon School District to support student learning and achievement. They also provide ways to ensure families can connect and communicate with teachers and schools.

Monitor Screen Time

Pay attention to, observe, and/or check in on the amount of minutes your student spends on a device, website, and/or program. Instead of focusing on the amount of minutes your students is spending on a device, think about the tasks they are accomplishing with that screen time. For more information and guidance review CSD’s screen time recommendations.

Communicate with Teachers

Communicating with your student’s teacher is an important step in staying involved with your student’s education. When you have questions and concerns, know the available methods to reach out. In addition to face to face communication, there are electronic means such as email, Canvas, and ParentSquare.

Support a Balanced Life

Collaborate as a family to develop a Family Media Agreement tailored to each students. Ensure sleep is not being affected by technology use. For more information and guidance review CSD’s screen time recommendations.
