Social media has become a part of daily life in our modern society, and one of its biggest consumers are teenagers. It’s something that can be used for serious business as well as having a bit of fun, or posting pictures of your dinner. But it can have a dark side too. So, whether you’re a teen, parent, or caregiver, you need to understand the positive and negative effects of social media and screen use.
This course explores both the positive effects and negative impacts that social media, along with excessive screen time, can have on teens’ mental health and well-being. It also provides tips on how to develop and maintain a healthy relationship with social media and digital devices.
If you follow the news, it might seem as if there’s always a new report about how social media and screen usage negatively affects teens. Issues like cyberbullying and sleep problems can occur as a result of social media, and they may seriously impact teens’ mental and physical health. Yet, there are also many great upsides to using social media and digital devices, such as developing stronger friendships and connections, and reducing feelings of isolation. It’s about finding a good, healthy balance.
The aim of this course was to offer practical advice to teens and parents alike. To assist that, we went for a real world theme, following a teenage girl and her father as they think about the problems and benefits of social media, and the effects of too much screen time. Through clever animation, and a touch of humour, this course delivers a story that is relatable and memorable. And by splitting the course up with user controlled menus, the learner is put in control of the pace of their learning, so they can revisit anything they’re unsure of time and time again.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
