Get to Know Screen Time for Parents

HGC’s iPad and BYOD program is an integral part of our curriculum. We understand that technology can be a powerful educational tool that offers extraordinary benefits for the educational outcomes of our students. These tools enable our students to learn, create and connect like never before.

However, we understand that balance is important in a child’s use of technology. As educators, we work hard to ensure that when our students are at school, they use their devices appropriately. We also emphasise the importance of balancing the use of technology with more traditional learning experiences.

We understand that as your child’s primary educator, you also want to ensure your child’s use of technology is appropriate and balanced. For this reason, we have shared this short video detailing how you can monitor your child’s use of technology through Screen Time. If you need support using this program or if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Shawn Taggart or Mr Daniel Summerell.

Working together, we can ensure that your child safely and appropriately harnesses the power of technology to create and learn.
