Intro to digital wellbeing

As technology evolves we tend to spend an increasing amount of time interacting with it. However, in some cases it can serve as a distraction from life rather than improving it. Throughout the course, youโ€™ll learn how to develop a healthy relationship with tech, why it is so important to have one, and how to maintain it. The course also covers tools that can make this easier.

This free online course is one of the many available through Googleโ€™s Digital Skills for Africa, a Google initiative in conjunction with various training partners, which aims to train young people in digital skills.

In Digital Skills For Africa you will find free training both face-to-face and online, which will help you to expand knowledge on topics that interest you, information that will allow you to optimise the way you present yourself for a job, and resources to start your own entrepreneurial project.
