Academic Curriculum - Cell Phone, iPod, or Social Networking Policy
Cell Phone, iPod and Social Networking Policy
At Upward Bound Math Science, you are here to learn positive academic habits that will help you succeed in college. But, we understand that staying connected to others is part of that balance. For every academic class that is 2 hours long, you may have one 10- minute break to use social networking media like Facebook, listen to music, or to call someone at home. For every 3-hour block of project time, you may have two 10-minute social networking/phone call/iPod breaks. Your instructors and mentors are encouraged to creatively use these technologies in their instruction, but are also given the power to remove these breaks at their discretion on a given class or project day.
