It can profoundly impact productivity in all areas of life, including work, home, school, and personal and professional relationships. WDC provides two open enrollment courses, a selection of customized off-site training solutions, and consultation services to assist our community in addressing this issue.

Customized and on-site training opportunities are available.

Courses

Introduction to Digital Addition

We all understand that texting while driving is bad, but this same type of distraction can also affect the workplace, family, and other settings where it can have a significant impact on safety, productivity, relationships, school, careers, and business liability. This course discusses the causes of digital addiction, examines its impact around the world, reviews the latest research and legislation to address it, and provides parents, supervisors, managers, and teachers with general principles for addressing digital distraction in every area of life.

Creating a Digital Wellness Culture at Your School

Teachers, professors, school administrators, school psychologists, IT managers, and librarians need a plan to address the rampant problem of digital addiction among students. This course provides a roadmap for creating a digital wellness culture at our schools to address the impact of tech addiction on students’ social vibrancy, emotional health, and academic performance. Topics covered include research on digital addiction among children, the impact of no-phone policies, educating students about the problem, and mechanisms for reinforcing the value of reducing screen time.

Screen Time and Personal Health and Wellness

Topics include how technology addiction impacts social and emotional life, cognitive function, productivity and safety at work, child development, and family life. Strategies and tactics for bringing screen time under greater control in all areas of life are covered, as well as “digital detoxification,” broaching the topic with children, and enlisting the help of others.
