Tech Tips for Parents

Technology is a vital part of our society today.  At RMS, we encourage and prepare students for the 21st century by helping them to contribute fully, to be self-advocates and to create lifelong memories and connections with peers and staff. 

Our dedicated teachers are increasing student engagement by implementing new technology resources into the classroom including Google quizzes, Peardeck and Kahoot. Technology immersion transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning.

As a parent, you may feel overwhelmed by the technology.  There are many great sites for students, but there are also a number of dangerous sites and social media apps.  The app listed below will help you monitor your child on his/her device.

The app called OurPact,  http://ourpact.com/ is a breakthrough parental control app that enables parental involvement in children's device habits and screen time through Internet and application blocking. You can set limits for the amount of time your child has access to their devices. The app also allows you to erase all applications on your child’s phone and make them reappear when you decide. It gives you an option to set bonus time if you want to reward your child.
