An Educational & Skilling Program on balancing technology with relationships for Digital Wellbeing

With the increasing availability and need for mobile devices with cheaper data and Internet access, they have become necessary for a connected and productive daily life, at work and socially. This rising ubiquity and usage has impacted the time and attention people pay to their relationships, in families, and among friends. There has been a growing concern about the distracting effect of heavy use of these devices extensively everyday on students and family relations.

Earlier in 2019 during an interaction with parents, PM Modi responded to a mother worried about the time her son spent on games on his phone very clearly, saying "Technology has two sides. Like everything else, technology, too, comes with its positives and negatives. As parents, we must guide our children to get the most from technology"

With similar goals, Liquid Works, a stakeholder and community engagement firm, conceptualized a countrywide initiative called 'Digi-Abhyas' that is aimed at 'Empowering digital citizens to effectively navigate a technology immersive society by helping them develop a balance between life, their relationships and technology.'

Liquid Works in association with other organizations and mental health experts have formed a consortium to bring awareness among children, parents, schoolteachers, counsellors and adults on tools, techniques to develop a balance between their use of technology and maintaining healthy relationships. The curriculum for the workshops is developed by experts from the field of cyber citizenship, cyber security, and reputed mental health professionals and shall be vetted by NCERT faculty.

The idea is to generate awareness about the concept of Digital Wellbeing while focusing on how to develop a positive and healthy relationship with technology by leveraging it to nurture relationships, improve productivity, foster learning and contribute to a holistic life rather than distract from it.
