Digital literacy and digital well-being are two important aspects of our lives in the modern world.
Digital literacy is the ability to use digital technologies effectively and responsibly. Digital well-being is the practice of using technology in a way that enhances our lives rather than detracts from them. It's about finding balance and moderation in our use of technology, and being mindful of how it affects our mental, emotional and physical health. There are many different aspects to digital well-being, but some key components include being able to set boundaries around our use of technology, such as limiting screen time or not using devices in bed, being aware of how technology affects our emotions, and taking steps to manage any negative effects, taking breaks from technology to connect with the world around us, both online and offline, and using technology in a way that is supportive of our personal and professional goals.
In this session, we will discuss the importance of digital well-being and how to achieve it. It is for anyone who wants to learn more about digital well-being and how to improve their own digital habits. It is also for those who are concerned about the negative impacts of technology on their lives or the lives of their loved ones.
