What Science Tells Us About Student Digital Wellness

GenZ is a web-savvy, app-happy, mobile-dependent generation who view their devices as extensions of themselves. When technology is foundational to identity, there’s a lot at stake, both to a student’s current emotional wellbeing and long-term digital footprint. This is why educators must teach beyond digital citizenship.

Our team sat down with Dr. Larry Rosen, an international expert in the “psychology of technology,” to discuss thoughtful teaching strategies for digital wellness, tailored for the adolescent brain. Together with Jacquie Moen, EVERFI’s Sr. Director of Social-Emotional-Learning Development, Dr. Rosen offers his thoughts on task-switching, metacognitive skills, and activities for strengthening students’ digital wellness. Jacquie also takes us behind the scenes of new lessons in online safety and digital citizenship.

To close, Lauren Pingul, Senior Manager of Implementation, shares best practices and extension ideas for bringing digital wellness directly to your students.
