Managing the digital gadgets, gizmos, and games that kids already own is often a challenge, and many parents find that a school-issued 1-to-1 device further disrupts an area in which there are already conflicts. 1-to-1 devices blur the lines between school and home, between work and play, between tool and toy. Many parents could use some help in setting boundaries. Written from the perspective of a family therapist who works to help families get to the heart of complicated matters, this guidebook addresses the home side of 1-to-1 programs. The book gives parents the language to keep conversations on track and provides the perspectives of other adults-educators and parents- who have addressed similar challenges.

About the Author:

Jason Brand is a psychotherapist and educational consultant in the San Francisco Bay Area, providing support to families and educators in a rapidly changing digital world. He leads school workshops about safety, trust, awareness, and respect in the digital age and also counsels families with children and adolescents. He wrote this guidebook after working closely with many school communities that had started 1-to-1 programs and found that parents need additional, specific support to manage the impact that their child's 1-to-1 device has on family life.

Review:

This book puts Jason's wise, warm-hearted, professional experience with kids and technology in the hands of parents. It walks parents through the school technology discussion, demystifying the school 1-to-1 tech adoption process so everybody can move quickly past the anxieties that naturally arise. It's collaborative; you'll find the wisdom of parents and school staff who've already 'been there.' And it embodies the respectful, whole school- community approach that research shows helps schools and families work together effectively in today's digitally informed, networked world. --Anne Collier, co-director, ConnectSafely.org
