Amount of screen time/length of synchronous lessons for elementary students

  • 1.  Amount of screen time/length of synchronous lessons for elementary students

    Hello,
    I was asked by my administration if I have information about recommendations for the length of synchronous lessons and total screen time for elementary students as we prepare for fully remote learning. Does anyone have thoughts or research you could share with me? Thank you!

    The research recommends no more than 30 minutes online and then a 20 minute break.

    Hi Sandee,
    Thanks for your response. That's helpful. Do you know research about the total time during the day for screen time or synchronous learning?
