Technology and  the Middle School Years

145: Technology and the Middle School Years

In this episode we look at technology and the middle school years from two different perspectives:

1. How much technology is too much?

The first topic I discuss is video gaming. The article I reference is here.
The Instagram account to look at is @juliebravewriter. Click on “Video Games” under highlights in Stories.

The second topic is Social Media. The website I reference is Social Media Test Drive. I also mention a previous podcast episode: Homeschooling Digital Natives


2. How much technology is too little?

Make sure they know the basics they will need for high school. FundaFunda Academy teaches a Computer Applications class that will prepare them well.

Let them take at least one online class in middle school. If you want an inexpensive self-paced option, look at FundaFunda’s web-based unit studies.

How to find balance in tech usage with middle schoolers?

I give ideas on different approaches. You are invited to join the Homeschooling Middle School Facebook Group to talk about this and other issues with homeschool parents of middle schoolers.
