Navigating the World of Technology with Kids in the Home, in the School

NAMTA Journal Volume 41, Number 2, ISSN 1522-9734


Bill Rupp offers practical wisdom from his perch as a Montessori parent of four children and as a self-proclaimed digital immigrant who has spent over twenty years in the information technology field. His list of "Considerations before Making Rules for Technology Use" builds on a positive environment of conversation and communication with wise suggestions for placement of computers, time limits, access, and a screen/life balance. Suggested guidelines for schools and a guide for the ideal times for schools to re-evaluate technology rules will be valuable to administrators and teachers at all schools. [This paper was presented at the NAMTA conference titled "A Montessori Integrated Approach to Science, Mathematics, Technology, and the Environment" in Portland, OR, Mar 31-Apr 3, 2016.]
