Helping Students Find Tech-Life Balance
This article is part of Flipd's Teacher Series with Hilliard City District in Ohio. Leading educators take to the Flipd Blog to share why digital wellness matters. Have you ever been 3 feet away from a porcupine on a leash? The reason I ask is because I recently had the opportunity to stay overnight at the Columbus Zoo with about 75 fifth graders. As you can imagine, the excitement was overflowing as they were able to be at the zoo when it was closed to the public, see exotic animals, and have a sleepover with 75 of their closest friends. The experience was a once in a lifetime opportunity for everyone involved.

How To Use Flipd For Class (For Students)
First, join your Flipd class with the 5-digit class code provided by your instructor.  >>> Tap here if you don't know how to join your class <<< 1. Join an Active Class Once you're joined in the right class, you can Flip Off by selecting the Class option on the Flipd home screen. You can only Flip Off during class or up to 5 minutes prior when the class says 'Join Now'. For example, if your class is from 2-3 pm, you can Flip Off at 1:55 pm until 3 pm. If you attempt to Flip Off too early, you'll get a pop up telling you to come back later. 2. Check In for Attendance (optional) Once you've successfully started your Flipd session, check-in with your attendance code — but only if your professor is using Flipd attendance. Then set your phone aside and avoid checking notifications in order to maintain your Flipd progress while the class is active. You can still check in without an internet connection — just make sure that the attendance code entered is correct. When Flipd connects to the internet again, your attendance will successfully sync up.   3. How to stay Flipd Off Staying Flipd Off for the lecture means that you remain in the Flipd #class screen until the timer runs out. You can still lock your phone and set it aside, but if you open your phone and attempt to leave Flipd to check something you will get a notification to remind you that you have 10 seconds to return.  Tip: If you don't come back to Flipd within 10 seconds, the Flipd timer will expire. You can always start it again, but every minute you spend outside of Flipd will be measured in your progress.   If you're not in a Flipd Class yet You can still Flip Off for class even if you're not part of a class yet. All of your time accumulated during the class period will be synced up once you've joined the class. Join a class as soon as possible, or send a message to Flipd Support if you have trouble.  Pro Tip To stay Flipd Off for class, simply Flip Off your phone, lock your screen, and set your phone aside until class is over. Each time you open your screen, check your notifications, or leave Flipd during the countdown, you run the risk of ending the Flipd session. The point is to help you develop more intentional phone-use behavior, and this skill will help you in other important activities — like studying, writing, working, and even spending time with friends.
