With the increasing use of mobile and computer devices for educational purposes, students are exposed to the digital world more than before. Identifying a timely topic, the programme not only discussed the safe use of mobile phones, but also the importance of responsible usage of various social media platforms, the advantages and disadvantages of social media and the productive use of education apps.

In such a situation, we cannot prohibit the use of mobile phones. Our duty is to educate them on the right and wrong so that they can make informed decisions when using social media. Our Sisu Dirimaga programme has continued to support the well-being of students in Sri Lanka, and we felt that this is one of the key issues that needs to be addressed”.
