Introducing Theme 4: Power Off and Play

‘Screen time’ is the time spent using a screen-based device, such as a smartphone, tablet, computer or television1 . Not all screen time is unhealthy. Screens can offer an important way to learn and communicate in school and at work. They can also be used in an active way – like playing tennis, soccer, baseball or other sports games on a device.

The focus of Power Off and Play! is on minimizing children’s recreational and sedentary screen time. It’s all about powering off devices and playing more.
