    Sep 20 2012: Sean, I think I should probably clarify a bit :) I don't really mean for them to take an entire semester away from technology. I'm really thinking just of the 20 minutes each day I attempt to meditate. This would probably qualify as the "right and adequate use" of which you speak. I don't really mean sabbatical in terms of a long period, but more of a sabbath as you may see in religious traditions (which is one day out of seven). I should be more careful about my word choice :)
