THE COLLEGE of Education of the University of Caloocan City shared tips on how to avoid online fatigue during distance learning.
In a shared post on Facebook from ‘TEACHnology PH’, a page that shares different technological tools for teaching and learning, it said that online fatigue can be contracted from excessive use of gadgets.
Its main symptoms are muscle pain, ear pain and mental exhaustion.
To avoid this, students were advised to change positions every hour, ensure correct posture, move frequently, walk for at least five to ten minutes after every hour, stretch, and include meditation exercises in their daily routine, TEACHnology PH said.
It noted that continuous use of gadgets for two hours straight is excessive.
