In this lecture:
Professor Hayo Reinders shared some of the insights and offer practical suggestions for how teachers can integrate notions of wellbeing into their own and their communities’ digital lives.
Since with ever more aspects of our (professional) lives being mediated through technology, it is increasingly important that we identify where technology is having a negative impact on our own and our learners’ wellbeing. In addition to widely-held concerns about privacy and security, in the last two years teachers have experienced such challenges as digital distraction, digital disorder and digital disarray (Hanin, 2021), adding a significant burden to workload and job satisfaction.
In this lecture professor Hayo Reinders highlighted ‘positive computing’, approaches for example, a number of important insights into how we can raise our awareness of our own and others’ practices and how we can work towards ‘digital wellbeing’.
