Digital Wellness: Navigating the Messiness of Being a Person Online
Being a person online can be messy and challenging. Disinformation, privacy breaches, online harassment, digital clutter, and doomscrolling are a few threats that learners and educators face. While we can not solve these challenges on our own, we can make informed decisions and set boundaries. In this workshop, we will discuss digital wellness—the capacity to pursue health, safety, and happiness online—as a core element of digital media literacy. Participants will practice analyzing elements of their own digital wellness, discuss the challenges they see in their communities, and leave with ideas and resources for incorporating digital wellness into their own teaching.
