Help your students reset tech habits, regain focus, and reclaim time 

Assemblies | Parent Presentations | Digital Detox Programs

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 social media use is linked to lower levels of working and long-term memory

Digital distraction is disrupting learning

Project Reboot helps students build tech habits that empower them inside and outside of the classroom

The Project Reboot Keynote

An engaging assembly designed to:
Inform students about the true cost of screen time
Inspire students to use technology intentionally
Empower students to build and maintain healthy tech habits
Delivered by a source students trust:

Dino Ambrosi is a digital wellness speaker and the founder of Project Reboot, a guided digital detox program designed to help teens reset their tech habits. While studying at UC Berkeley, he created a semester-length course that helped over 100 of his peers reduce their screen time by an average of 3.5 hours per day. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in Data Science, he embarked on a mission to spread the contents of his course to a broader audience. Through speaking, consulting, and facilitating Project Reboot, he has helped over 4,000 teens build healthier relationships with technology.

Learning outcomes include:
How unchecked smartphone use decays resilience
​Consequences of social media's business model
How screen time scales over a lifetime
Cognitive impacts of excessive screen time
Why students often develop tech addictions in college
Strategies to reduce screen time
Why students listen
Asking teens to delete social media is unfair and unrealistic
Rather than lecturing students about the negative aspects of social media, Dino asks them to rethink their relationship with their phones around one key notion: you pay for social media with your time. By refraining from telling teens how they should be using their phones and asking them to think critically about what it means for them to get a good deal out of social media, Dino motivates students to build tech habits that empower them.

Executive Director, Creekside Charter School

"Dino drew our students in, allowed them to relate to him without feeling shame or guilt, and left them with motivation for reducing screen time.  The parent presentations mirrored the student presentations, allowing for families to have authentic conversations with their children about how screens are negatively impacting their lives.  Project Reboot was able to weave research, practical advice, and authentic connection with the audience into one presentation.  Our community was very impressed."

Elise Simmons

Principal, Santa Barbara High School

"Dino Ambrosi and Project Reboot was an eye-opening and life-changing experience for many of our students and parents/guardians. The simplicity of his message about reducing screen time and its positive impacts on our lives was empowering."

Logan Mallonee

Principal, Truckee High School

"I highly recommend Project Reboot. Dino's approach guides students to their own informed decisions regarding their tech use without forcing anything on them, which I'm confident will set them up for success in college and beyond."

Heather David

Teacher, Creekside Charter School

"My 6th grade class struggles with technology usage especially with addiction to video games. They were so engaged throughout your conversation and were open to taking a digital detox which is a huge step for them! Wonderful presentation!"
