This is good for wellbeing because
- It teaches individuals that modern tech isn’t so scary and can be used to their advantage.
- If family members live far away from them it could allow them to see each other via Facetime for example, which can help a person that might be feeling lonely to feel less isolated.
- It enables people to do things from the comfort of their own home without having to worry about going out if they are a vulnerable individual. For example, they can order their shopping to be delivered, search cooking recipes, text, or play games.
