Moving Health Literacy Forward with a Dose of Digital Wellness Public

Personal technology use can significantly impact wellness - both positively and negatively. In this Pennsylvania Library Association College and Research Division (PaLA CRD) Spring Workshop session, participants will engage in learning activities from a Digital Wellness workshop in order to consider digital wellness in the context of health literacy and privacy. Facilitators will demonstrate the use of virtual reflection stations, a Digital Wellness Wheel worksheet, and digital wellness case studies to deliver health literacy programming with a focus on awareness of technology use and privacy considerations. Participants will experience student-facing workshop materials to consider the impacts, both positive and negative, of technology and privacy on digital wellness as a facet of general well-being. The relationship between digital wellness and health literacy will be explored. Presenters will facilitate a discussion of ideas and considerations for incorporating digital wellness into libraries' health literacy efforts, as well as, privacy education as described in the Library Bill of Rights Article VII.
