Tech’ top tips – #18. Digital Detox – we’re having a break

This tip is provided by the Centre for Enhancing Learning through Technology (CELT).

De Montfort University Leicester is taking the unprecedented step of turning off its social media channels in order to draw attention to the impact of unrestrained social media use on mental health.

The digital detox will run from Wednesday 16th to Monday 21st January inclusive.

To support this initiative, we at CELT will also be taking a break from social media and there will be no Tech’ Top Tip on the 21st.

The digital detox is part of the #HealthyDMU initiative, which brings together everything that the university offers to provide a great healthy experience.

Tech’ Top Tips will be back on Monday the 28th January but in the meantime, why not come to one of CELT’s Digital You workshops that can be booked via the UserGuide tab in Blackboard.

See you on the 28th!
