RE@L’s 1Up On Vaping™ Will Soon Be Available To Help Students Choose “No Vaping, No Tobacco and No Nicotine. Period!”

RE@L is moving ahead quickly with the coming release in January of our new RE@LearningProduct™:

 1Up On Vaping

The accompanying RE@LProduct Tag Line is: Taking Down Teen Nicotine™. That’s our new RE@L goal! That new phrase is what’s called positive, “with-it” teen lingo. The new medium for middle-schoolers is our 1Up On Vaping™ message.

Our short RE@L quips about vaping and tobacco are a large part of what it takes to get both the attention of and positive results from our teenagers. Daily, these young, uninformed students are being tempted to vape with their so-called “friends.”

Middle School students need to know that those who tempt them to vape aren’t real friends at all. No real friend makes another friend sick. Or die! Vaping is now causing potentially DEADLY tragedies among our youth.

From “Yahoo Lifestyle!” here’s a recent news story on vaping that tells the awful harm vaping can cause. Here’s the headline: 

“Teen who received double lung transplant for vaping illness was ‘days’ from death, doctors say!”

RE@L’s revolutionary, new anti-vaping product, 1Up On Vaping™, will be released within the next 30 days. This promising RE@L-Moai LearningProduct™ will soon be accessible to awaiting middle school students and teachers. It’s time for all of us to address harmful, sometimes deadly, nicotine issues in all K12  school communities.

bwMiddle school students currently produce the greatest percentage of students choosing to vape various nicotine products.

Given the danger to student health, there’s no time to waste informing them about the great danger that lurks in vaping in particular and nicotine products in general.

RE@L’s 1Up On Vaping™ is a revolutionary anti-nicotine curriculum learning product. Students can explore various vaping issues that enable them to make an informed decision not to vape, not to smoke, not to chew, and not to use any nicotine or tobacco product. Period!

How does this healthful decision happen? 1Up OnVaping™ engages each student with RE@L’s unique “mind-changing, decision-making” process. It significantly reduces the number of students who choose to vape.

Since peer pressure has a lot to do with students’ choices to vape or not to vape, the more who chose no nicotine, the fewer who use it. 1Up OnVaping™ helps make that happen.

RE@L’s testing of 1Up On Vaping™ shows significantly more positive student decision-making to avoid the temptation to start vaping.  RE@L tests all its LearningProducts™ from design to use, and with both students and teachers.

OregonTrail25thPosterMany RE@LBlog readers may remember MECC’s world famous”Oregon Trail™.” All MECC software was created, tested and and widely-distributed to a broad K-12 audience. That’s why MECC’s software worked so well! That’s the same strategy that drives RE@L today.

Using our past MECC experience, our RE@LTeam knows how to build a national market for a tested product that delivers as promised: “1Up On Vaping!” A simpler way of saying it is: “The more students who know about tobacco, the fewer who choose to use it.” Positive peer pressure really helps.

 1Up On Vaping™ helps lead many more middle-schoolers to choose “No Vaping!”

It is imperative for us who work with K12 EdTech to connect with groups of school personnel, from teachers to principals, to School Boards, to Departments of Education, It’s equally important to contact our legislators, both state and federal.

Don’t forget local laws, either. Pioneer PressRecently one of our local metro areas raised the age from 18 to 21 to those buying tobacco products.

RE@L’s 1Up On Vaping LearningProducts™ need to be accessible throughout our many classrooms everywhere. 

america-41776__340We need a concerted effort. We need YOU, our RE@LBlog readers to help  make this goal happen!

Talk it up with your fellow teachers. Inform your school principals and parents, too. Write your legislators and governors and ask their support. Pass the good word about the bad decisions on vaping. Encourage more students to learn more before they choose tobacco in any form. 

That’s what good teachers and good educators do:

  • Let’s pass it on! 
  • Let’s work together to stop vaping before it starts.
  • Let’s get the help our students need!

The health of today’s students and tomorrow’s adults depends on the right decisions now.
