No Tech 4 U! Students’ Stories of Tech Abstinence

What happens when first-year college students study their own digital technology use AND must give up technology for 24 hours? Students ultimately (a) accounted for their weekday/weekend tech use, (b) became aware of tech’s threads in their lives and in education, and (c) considered changes in their future tech use. We’ll share 8 storylines of their experiences: FOMO, Relationship Breaker / Connector, Real-Life Blocker, Personal Assistant, Distraction / Addiction, and Educational Benefit.
