NORTHLANDS Unplugged

31 May, 2017 - Disconnect to connect





Since 2017, at Northlands we have decided that twice a year, we will go "Unplugged". This means that the entire day will be carried out with NO digital technology. This initiative helps us our community become more aware of the environment and the people that surround us since we can maintain a more meaningful and direct contact with each other.

“NORTHLANDS is a school, which places enormous importance and invests heavily in Technology, seeing clearly its role in the future day-to-day existence of our children. NORTHLANDS is also a school, which develops children who question and who reflect, who are capable of asking themselves profound questions such as: Do I really need this? Do I really want it? What is it doing to me? The only way to answer those questions truly is to first try living without it for a short while.” James Coulson, Headmaster.

Desde 2017, Northlands ha tomado la iniciativa de desconectarse dos veces al año durante un día completo. Proponemos un día entero sin el uso de dispositivos electrónicos. Esta iniciativa nos ayuda a tomar conciencia de nuestro entorno y las personas que nos rodean, teniendo un contacto más profundo y directo con ellos.

“NORTHLANDS es un colegio que le da gran importancia y que invierte mucho en Tecnología, ya que ve claramente su rol en la vida cotidiana de nuestros chicos. Pero además, NORTHLANDS los invita a cuestionar y a reflexionar, a que sean capaces de hacerse preguntas profundas como: ¿realmente necesito esto? ¿Realmente lo quiero? ¿Qué me está haciendo? La única forma de responder verdaderamente a estas preguntas es primero, intentar vivir sin tecnología por un corto plazo.” James Coulson, Headmaster.
