Screen Watch: Screen Time Recording Activity

Created By: Kim Maslin, Digital Technologies Educator

Lesson Overview

This activity sees students record the amount of screen time they consume over a 1-week period. There are two types of screen time record sheets included: “by device” and “by use”

Students record to the nearest 15-minutes how often they use a screen at home. This can then be discussed in class, with opportunities for students to represent their findings visually through graphs. Further, this activity leads into using the Switch the Screen activity to look at ways of reducing their screen time.
