About This Course

What methods and strategies can educators employ to address the issue of digital addiction among students in an educational setting?

This course aims to empower educators with knowledge and tools to confront digital addiction among their students. We begin by defining digital addiction, its signs and symptoms, and how it affects a student’s academic performance, psychological wellbeing, and social interactions.

Next, we delve into the heart of the course – practical and effective strategies that educators can implement within their classrooms and schools.

The course also emphasizes the necessity of open communication with students about their digital consumption. Educators will learn how to initiate these often sensitive conversations, offer empathetic support, and provide constructive guidance.

By the end of this course, educators will be well-equipped with a comprehensive understanding of digital addiction and practical strategies to tackle it effectively within their educational settings.
