Screen time refers to the time spent on devices – mobile, tabs, computer and television. World Health Organisation recommends up to 1 hour of screen time for children aged 3 – 5 years and about 1.5 – 2 hours for Primary Students. Not at all screen time is terrible, especially if there is a human at the other end of the screen. The Screen Time at 21K School has a caring teacher at the other end and is part of the structured learning process. 21K School does not require the use of social media platforms, gaming apps and requires limited browsing on the internet. The only screen time expected is for online classes and related tasks/activities. At the pre-primary level, the screen time is more with adults than with screen and is being used to provide a human touch to the home-schooling process.
We advise parents to restrict the screen time of their children beyond 21K School hours. Detailed guidelines, tips and counselling support will b provided to all enrolled students to help manage the screen time of their children.
