Issaquah High School senior Robin Lustig wasn’t supposed to be on her phone, but she checked it anyway.
“I definitely had a slip-up,” she said. “I check my phone every five minutes, even if I know for a fact I don’t have any text messages or any missed calls. That’s what society is these days. You have to be updated constantly with what’s on Twitter, what’s on Instagram.”
Lustig and nearly 600 other students at Issaquah High School stopped using technology for three days beginning Jan. 13, as part of a technology timeout hosted by a documentary filmmaker. That meant no computers, cellphones or social media.
