Classical Schools: Authorities on Education

Nicholas Kardaras, author of Glow Kids: How Screen Addiction is Hijacking Our Kids – and How to Break the Trance, warns of the problems associated with too much screen time. In a recent Time article, Kardaras notes how screen technologies have spawned a “seismic shift” in education. The underlying assumption in this shift is that technology always benefits schooling. “This,” says Kardaras, “is a lie.” As Karadaras claims, “[t]ech in the classroom not only leads to worse educational outcomes for kids…it can also clinically hurt them.”
As many of you know, the latest Mindhenge video takes up the technology and education topic. Like the other Mindhenge videos, this latest video addresses a topic I find myself having to regularly discuss in my role as headmaster. Classical Christian schools take a unique position on technology and education, setting them apart within the educational landscape.
My goal with these videos is to help classical schools become known as purveyors of education in their communities; professionals who offer a distinct approach to education - an approach that has stood the test of time. I believe these videos can help communities view their local classical school as an authority on education.
Next month, I plan to share why I believe your school’s use of these videos is an effective recruiting and educational tool.
