  1. Using digital devices at night affects the sleeping habits of students and damages their mental health, Australian educators warned on Friday. Liz Bobos, co-president of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Principals Association, said the trend is causing children to act like “device vampires” with disrupted sleep cycles that see them sleep through much of the school day. “We tuck our children into bed, we read them a story, we say goodnight and we assume that eyes are shut — but there’s no guarantee that happens,” Bobos told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on Friday. She said that schools had reported an increase in referrals to psychologists but many youth mental health programmes did not treat children younger than 12. Sarah Blunden, director of the Australian Centre for Education in Sleep, said that the blue light emitted by mobile devices delays the release of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep, disrupting the body’s circadian rhythms, which regulate sleep cycles. She said: “because our circadian clock does have a distance to run, because we go to sleep later, we are alert later. “If you have a disrupted circadian clock, one that is delayed, but also one that is different day to day, you are more likely to have an emotional lability, that is, a much more volatile emotional state. “You’re more likely to be depressed or have waves of depression or anxiety.” Ms Bobos said schools and parents needed to coordinate to ensure children were using technology appropriately. “Schools have a huge role to play in teaching children … about creating balance in their life. “There are apps that parents can put on their own phone that don’t restrict children from accessing technology, but allow parents to know what apps their children are accessing, so parents can have a conversation with their kids. “There’s a real opportunity for parents to educate children there,” she said.
  2. To help the Nigerian education sector grow, it is important that we call out individuals who oppress in the system. Calling out universities and individuals won’t always cut it, as there are usually faces behind every oppressive regime – it is important that those oppressive faces are called out, shamed and sanctioned appropriately. Following the revelations of the disgraceful and unfortunate incidence where student were forcefully shaved, other Nigerian students from other universities have come out to tell their stories of oppression in their various universities. But unfortunately calling out the universities is not enough but doing so and publicly shaming individuals involved in such despicable act through the power of social media. The CU management has denied ever giving this individual the authority to carry out that despicable punishment of shaving students hair. This is Dr. Timothy Aneke the Dean Of Student Affairs of Covenant university who instructed the forceful shaving of students hair with an unsterilized clipper. He is a graduate of University Of Uyo(BSc), University of Ibadan(MSc) and Covenant University (PhD) and a former staff of Igbinedion University.
