Writer, speaker and podcast host Christina Crook has been studying the relationship between joy and technology for over a decade. Whether you’re seeking presence, peace, focus or productivity, Christina has shaped tools and teachings to reconnect your habits with your happiness. 
With all of the conversations of happiness, well-being, and current mental health issues this was a fun conversation for me to have as Christina is an expert in being mindful about our lives as well as being intentional about the use of technology. Enjoy the conversation, but also check out more JOMO resources at her website.

Happy 2023, and I think this is a great conversation to kick-off the New Year and 2nd Semester of school. Dr. Erik Demeulenaere of Clark University wrote a journal article that intrigued me called Disrupting School Rituals based on a class he co-taught with two other local teachers in Worcester, MA. 
I hope this encourages you as you think about this in your classroom and schools and how it might help you reimagine the good (but messy) work that can happen in those spaces.
