(Result 3).
4) Digital Wellbeing Online Game: Promoting individual reflection on the concept of digital wellbeing by developing an online game, which will enable students to reflect on their relationship with digital technology and help them identify possible risks (Result 4).
The project is expected to have the following impact: teachers and educators will improve their understanding of the risks of social and digital media usage and use the resources to introduce more effective pedagogic strategies for teaching and assessing digital competences congruent with digital wellbeing. They will integrate digital wellbeing skills into their teaching practice and curricula, and act as facilitators of positive change within the class groups. This will lead to a strengthening of their professionalism with respect to 21st century skills. Students will be given the opportunity to reflect on their relationship with the digital technologies, enhance their awareness of the risks and become critical digital consumers and creators.
