Digital distraction is disrupting learning

Students have an escape from discomfort in their pockets at all times. Given the stress of teenage life, it's no wonder that many have developed addictions to their phones that are impacting their mental health, distracting them in school, and preventing them from reaching their potential.
U.S. teens are averaging 8:39 hours of unproductive screen time per day 
The mere presence of a smartphone disrupts critical thinking and drains attention
Excessive smartphone use is significantly linked to lower levels of working and long-term memory

Why Students Love Project Reboot

Science-based curriculum

Approachable lessons that will deepen their understanding of why technology can be addictive and teach them how to win back control over their devices

Topics include:

  • Leading research on dopamine and its role in tech addictions

  • How to reconfigure your devices to eliminate distractions

  • Impacts of screen time on cognition and mental health

There are no prescriptions

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to healthy tech habits, so we don't tell students how much screen time is too much.
 
The objective of the program is to help students clarify their intentions for their tech use, then give them a powerful toolkit to stick to them for the long term.

About Dino

An ex-social media addict on a mission to help his peers build healthy relationships with tech

E1F237B2-59A0-439C-BD7A-B5F5A8FDE1D9_1_201_a.jpeg

Dino Ambrosi is an expert at helping high school and college students build intentional digital habits. While studying at UC Berkeley, he created a popular course called Becoming Tech Intentional which he taught to over 60 of his fellow students who reduced their screen time by an average of over 3 hours per day.

As part of the first generation to use social media in high school, Dino recognizes the challenges that social media presents teens and is able to connect with them as a peer. After overcoming his own addiction to social media and helping dozens of Berkeley students do the same, he understands what it takes to build better digital habits and knows how to motivate others to do so.
