Like time-warping to 1995, what would it be like for your students to go back to an era of no e-mail, no Facebook or Twiitter? Could they do it? Could you do it? For how long? Would it spark anxieties, or call on social skills rendered useless by the digital age? The Digital Blackout DVD tells the story of a school that conducted an experiment, challenging their student body and faculty to stow the social media and record their experiences. The Digital Blackout is eye-opening.

It showcases:

  • The astounding amount of time we devote to social media
  • The face-to-face frendships the internet has maybe devalued
  • The stress brought on by our relentless multi-taking
  • And (yes!) the benefits for a digital world that one rightly misses during a Blackout.

Includes: DVD, plus everything needed for a group to organize its own custom 1, 3 or 7 - day blackout.
