The Device Wise Programme

The device wise reduction programme has been designed and developed by Dr Charlotte Armitage. The aim of the programme is to encourage children to become more consciously aware of their device use and the impact that that their device use has on their physical and psychological wellbeing, as well as on their ability to function at school, at home and in their relationships.

Through this programme, children are gradually encouraged to reduce the time spent on their devices, whilst paying attention to what this feels like, both positive and negative. The objective of the programme is to facilitate a change in attitudes towards device use and to empower individuals to make a more informed choice regarding their device use.
