Panel Perspective: ‘Burnout To Balance: Wellbeing In A New Digital Era’, Featuring Professor Andy Przybylski

The panel featured the industry perspective from both Tami Bhaumik of Roblox and Mindy Brooks of Google, the academic point of view from Andy Przybylski of OII, and the non-profit perspective from Áine Lynch of Ireland’s National Parents Council. The discussion featured digital wellbeing best practices when thinking about the use of social media, immersive technologies, and AI.  The panelists also shared their expertise and discussed ways in which both parents and children can feel more empowered to take control of their relationship with technology in a healthy and balanced way.

Commenting On Digital Wellbeing, Professor Przybylski said:

“Platforms and games and online environments change faster sometimes than parents can be prepared for.  Being realistic about how you break down digital wellbeing and what you’re talking about in terms of individual contextual factors is critically important”.
