This is the generation (our students) who have no idea how to live with out their phones. They don’t know what to do when faced with a long bus ride without technology by their side. We are taking 8th graders to a museum where no phones are allowed. We asked them to leave them in their lockers. What?! No phones on the bus? No music? What will we do on the ride? how will we survive? what if we need them? Oh my! when I tell them that I didn’t get my first phone till age 40 they almost die of shock. How different their lives will be.
