Promotion of Appropriate Use of Electronic Devices Among Hong Kong Adolescents
The advancement of technology is changing the world so rapidly with implication to people’s daily activities and health. The excessive utilisation of electronic devices, particularly among adolescents, are affecting the physical, psychological and social wellbeing of these young people. Physical inactivity, obesity, musculoskeletal conditions, vision, cognitive development, sleep pattern, family relationship, addiction and gaming are issues of importance and attention arising from the inappropriate use of electronic devices. Stakeholders, including the parents, teachers, government, community organisations and the adolescents themselves, have different but complementary roles in the prevention of internet addiction and in the promotion of appropriate use of electronic devices among adolescents.
