Understanding the measurement techniques or tools available, and the context-specific needs of the measurement of wellbeing, will allow educational technologists to understand how to improve design and implementation. This will enable the development of more effective, research-informed EdTech.
The purpose of this paper is to help EdTech designers understand wellbeing and how to use different measurement strategies in an educational/digital technology context.
The summary of evidence available should help guide the design of research and technology. It will also encourage consideration of recommendations and critical factors that may affect measurements of wellbeing that are appropriate to the context.
