This is a really useful read to understand the effect that our digital world can have on our children and on ourselves.  Well worth a read!  Helen @helenbeetham writes that to care for our digital wellbeing is to:

  • look after personal health, safety, relationships and work-life balance in digital settings;
  • act safely and responsibly in digital environments;
  • manage digital stress, workload and distraction;
  • use digital media to participate in political and community actions;
  • use personal digital data for wellbeing benefits;
  • act with concern for the human and natural environment when using digital tools;
  • balance digital with real-world interactions appropriately in relationships;
