The importance of digital well-being in education, and in particular in higher education, has been growing in recent times, partly due to the increasing demand for technology as a result of the pandemic.
Thus EREdWeB´s main objective is to elaborate a sound methodology, including conceptual models, methods and tools for a better understanding of the relationships between digital well-being and immersive environments as a significant contribution to digital well-being in education. To achieve this purpose, the project aims to provide a set of recommendations for developing educational activities based on IE, mainly targeting higher education.
The project started in June 2020 and ended in May 2021, involving all the partners to evaluate the potential of IE in terms of digital well-being, while considering the related implications they may have in different aspects, as mentioned below:
The project produced the following main outputs:
The EREdWeB Consortium is looking for potential partners to extend the topics analysed in the project and for pursuing further funding opportunities. Further information in the video below:
