Technology Tips You Should Know

Picture this: You’ve finally reached your trip destination and you’re beyond excited for your group to see the event you’ve spent a year planning. Then, you look up only to see most of the students staring at their smart phones. You can’t help but feel disappointment.

This situation is all too common on educational trips. It can be hard to compete with TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram and texting. We’d like to help you encourage your students to put the device away and absorb the experience around them. But first, we should acknowledge that smart phones do offer some respectable benefits.
