JISC: Digital Wellbeing for you, your colleagues and students

The paper offers guidance on the positive actions individuals can take to improve their own wellbeing and some good practice principles to support the wellbeing of others.

Technologies and digital activities can impact on physical, mental, social and emotional wellbeing in both positive and negative ways. How far these might affect an individual depends on their personal context, circumstances and capacity to deal with – or take advantage of these impacts. Digital wellbeing can be considered in these four contexts: social, personal, learning and work. Although education organisations have a duty of care to make sure their employees and students have a safe, legally compliant and supportive digital environment to work and learn in, individuals have responsibility for aspects within their control and should take appropriate steps to ensure they achieve and maintain a positive approach to digital wellbeing.
