Abstract

Objective: The development of information and communication technologies (ICT) has revealed cases of adolescents with hindered learning and rest due to excessive use, which could exceptionally become addictive. To increase a healthy use of Internet, the mobile phone, and videogames programmes some activities have to be developed in educational centres. The objective of the study was to provide educators with a programme to train adolescents in the good use of ICT, and to assess its effectiveness. Material and method: To assess the use of Internet, the mobile phone, and videogames before and after the application of the programme, the pilot version of the CERI, CERM, and CERV questionnaires was used. Results: The group with common problems in Internet use dropped from 55% to 47% and the group with common problems in the use of videogames fell from 50.5% to 0% while the group with common problems in using mobile increased from 26.1 to 58%. Conclusions: Therefore, the program was effective in reducing problems associated with the use of Internet and videogames but not mobile.
