Taking Out Technology

Could you go three days without ANY electronics, including computers, radios, phones and TV?

GREAT story out of Tennessee on Thursday's show: A teacher asked his students to give up ALL electronics for three days.  They were challenged to go without computers, iPods, radios, cell phones, television...  You name it:  If it had a battery or needed an outlet, students couldn't use it!

Now as I sit at my desk at work, typing on my blog, with my cell phone next to the keyboard and CNN playing in my monitor, I fully understand how dependent we all are on technology.  But I am curious to what you think about this:  Can you see any benefits to going without technology for three days?
