Andrea Davis is the founder of Better Screen Time, a former teacher, and a mother of five. She's also spent a lot of time learning from productivity experts over the years.
Because Andrea doesn't want her kids on screens more than is necessary, she has been implementing and testing some of her learning and productivity strategies with her own kids to help them stay focused while doing homework online during the virus quarantine.
After some tweaking, she and her kids have landed on a simple process to help your kids stay focused, keep learning, and not spend crazy amounts of time on screens!
