Will You Unwire for a Day? Please issue the challenge and take our survey.

I have two very amazing young men looking over my shoulder as I write this post. They have a challenge and some questions to ask you and your students.

We are looking for people and students who are willing to UNWIRE for a day. That's right. One whole day! Now, if you need to use technology for work/school that is ok. But, besides that we want your cell phone off, your xbox off, and even your TV off for a day.

Are you and your students willing to take the challenge?

Why or why not? Either way we want you to fill out our survey!

They would like as many people as possible to take the challenge and fill out their survey between now and next Monday at 8:15 am Eastern.

If you're NOT willing – go ahead and fill out the survey. If you are willing, come back and fill out this survey AFTER you have completed the challenge! (even if you fail) What do you think your students will say?

This is part of our Digiteen Action project.

You want those of us who won’t unwire to still fill out the form, and then the last page is full of required questions asking how unwiring went. Flawed survey.

Oops– sorry about that, it should exempt you from the last page. I need to go fix that! My 9th graders made the form and we just didn’t catch this. We’ll fix it today! THANK YOU for leaving the message.
