According to the Columbus Dispatch, a group of industrial design students at the Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD) are working on “a multi-semester project to examine the impact of technology on mental health.” As part of a related student-led CCAD initiative, all students were asked to avoid their smartphones and the internet for a single day, and write thoughts they would have posted to social media on a Post-It note instead.

CCAD students disconnecting from their phones during Unplugged Day. It’s a 24-hour student-led initiative. Instead of phones, they had an analog Facebook wall! They used post-its to write what was on their mind. @wsyx6 @fox28columbus pic.twitter.com/2Y0Nx0n9U6
