EdTech: Digital well-being for all (Part 1)
When we go online we build up, piece by piece, online identities that can have positive and negative outcomes for our well-being, our sense of self-worth and for our future prospects, all based on how others react and respond to our activity. Each time we contribute to the web, we add to an online identity.
In this this module we will explore awareness of how digital technologies can negatively affect well-being. In Digital well-being for all (Part 2) we will go on to explore strategies for managing reputation. In How to tread a positive digital footprint will look in more detail at digital footprints.
This module will help you to foster learners’ awareness of how digital technologies can positively and negatively affect health and well-being.
After completing this module, you will be able to:
• explain and illustrate the concept of digital well-being with learners
• promote healthy and safe practice with digital technology and media.

Good reinforcement of key info to pass on to learners
Hits home some key points
The tick-list was revealing in terms of advice I've (not) passed on... but will now!
The module really got me to think about how to explain your digital footprint to learners and how to help them understand the impact of this
great. It really got me thinking about digital presence
An interesting topic. However, I think the answers to the question needs to be revisited. There are two clear answers but the third one that is suggested appears to be written incorrectly? I may have read it wrong myself?
Useful links to explore for web building
Brief, but relevant content.
useful reminders of key points
The video of the woman in a job interview would be an effective resource to show learners an negative example of the impact of their virtual space.
