Back-to-school tech tips: 

  1. Protect your eyes with blue-light glasses. Spending long hours in front of screens can strain your eyes. Consider investing in blue-light glasses, which can help reduce eye strain and protect your eyes from the harmful effects of blue light emitted by digital screens. 
  1. Take regular breaks. Encourage your child to take regular breaks from their devices. Prolonged screen time can lead to eye fatigue and other health issues. Encourage them to follow the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break and look at something 20 feet away. 
  1. Create a centralized charging station. To keep devices organized and ensure they are charged, create a centralized charging station in your home. This can help prevent misplaced devices and ensure they are always ready for use. 
  1. Back up your data. Before the school year starts, make sure to back up important files and documents. This can be done using cloud storage services or external hard drives. In case of device loss, damage, or malfunction, having a backup will ensure that important data is not lost. 
  1. Update software and apps. Ensure that all devices have the latest software updates and app updates installed. These updates often include important security patches and bug fixes, which can help keep devices running smoothly and protect against security vulnerabilities. 
  1. Clean your devices. Regularly clean your devices to keep them in good condition. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe screens and a soft brush or compressed air to remove dust from keyboards and ports. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that may damage the devices.
