Dear Principal,

Earlier this week I read a funny news article about an Elephant entering a house in Thailand. The family shared this picture:

Elephant In The Room: Thai Family Gets Repeat Mammoth Visitor

When I saw this picture all I could think of was how "screen-time" entered our lives in March 2020 and is now comfortably sitting in the center of our day, everyday.

I was in a panel discussion last week and I was asked about "good screen time." One thing led to another, and vola we now have a full fledged webinar on this. Take a look --

On July 1, I am in conversation with these two fine people:

  • Mr. Roshan Gandhi, CEO of the City Montessori School Group
  • Ms. Aditi Mehta, Academic director for Freadom app and live class

We're speaking on these broad topics:

  • What is "good" and what is "bad"screen-time?
  • What should we allow? What should we say "no" to?

I invite you and your senior teachers to join us. The webinar has limited seats and this email goes to 25,000 schools - so please register early. This is the registration link - click here.

[Note: the webinar is not for parents.]
