‘Look Up Challenge’ Encourages Kids To Put Down Their Phones Together
The entire student body at McGlynn Middle School in Medford, MA took on the LookUp Challenge: Week of Joy. Led by the student group, Center for Citizenship and Social Responsibility, 125 students voluntarily signed up for the Challenge, which included daily tips and words of encouragement in the student-generated “Morning Show." Students also posted notes with their thoughts of joy and gratitude on the Wall of Joy. In a post-Challenge student forum, one student said: “I noticed that hanging with friends without your phone is actually very fun, and it is possible." The LookUp Challenge made such an impact, that students are doing it again in February. This time, they have challenged the High School as well as their parents!
