Teacher Challenge: Give up tech for a week

Students at one Tennessee high school were recently challenged to go an entire week to give up their tech lifestyles!

Many of the students had a tough time making the sacrifice. And surprisingly -- some of the toughest things they had to give up weren't their smart phones!

"The hardest was the radio in my truck. I don't like riding around in silence. You can hear my car, you know working. You hear the noises and stuff, I hate that," said one student.

The teacher offers the experiment as a way for students to earn extra credit. He says in the years he's done it. So far, he's only had three students make it the entire week.
