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.

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? Report this review
I'm still confused as i did not think 123456 is an appropriate password to give, too easily guessed. Report this review
