New Years Resolutions for Digital Habits

64: New Years Resolutions for digital habits

 

The beginning of a new year is a good time to reflect on our lives – including our digital habits. Here are some ideas for New Years Resolutions for Digital Habits.

Bad tech habits we can change

  • Track your online time for a week to see where you are wasting time online
  • Sign up for the Infomagical challenge to take a close look at your habits.

Consider signing your teens up for FundaFunda Academy’s Computer Applications class next year as it includes a module on Digital Habits and has them do the Infomagical Challenge.

Good tech habits

You need to make sure you are keeping up with tech. Try to learn something new each month – make a plan now. Here are some ideas:

  • Create digital birthday invitations
  • Use an online tool to select a meeting time
  • Do online coaching with a tool like Zoom
  • Try out educational games to use in your homeschool
  • Learn to code
  • Learn to use Google Drive apps or if you already use them, find ways to use them for projects in your homeschool
  • Create online quizzes for your kids (episode on this topic coming up soon)
  • Learn to use Trello

Bonus idea for a New Years’s Resolution

Use tech to connect intentionally with people. Once a month review a podcast, leave a comment of a blog post, message someone to thank them for what they do, reach out to someone you haven’t seen for a long time etc.

I would love to know what your plans are and how they turn out this year so be sure to join our Facebook group where we can share with each other.
