Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will engage in a lesson on basic spreadsheet skills to create a pie chart about their schedule.
From that information, participants will reflect on their on/off line balance and how healthy it is.
Participants will watch videos, engage in activities, and reflect on questions so they can establish a healthy balance on their own.
They are invited to revisit the spreadsheet at a later date to leave evidence of the changes they have made to their schedule.

Outline

The content is a lesson unit that can be edited for teachers to use in their classroom.
The mini-lessons, videos, and online activities can be edited for time.
Participants will engage in various pieces of the three lesson unit.
