Contenido del artículo principal

Resumen

El objetivo del presente artículo es analizar las diferentes formas en que las tecnologías digitales afectan a la salud de los jóvenes. Para lograr esto, se realizó una revisión de la literatura siguiendo dos etapas. Fueron estudiadas 65 publicaciones científicas y procesadas en dos etapas sucesivas. En la primera, se procesaron 30 trabajos disponibles, de manera exclusiva, en la Base de Datos ScienceDirect y que evidenciaron una relación conceptual en el ámbito de la salud mental y el uso de las tecnologías digitales. En una segunda etapa, se trabajó solo con las fuentes que incluyen el tema de la COVID-19 y sus relaciones con la salud mental y el uso de las tecnologías digitales, en un contexto de aportaciones diferenciadas para el ámbito universitario. Mediante una síntesis que recoge el análisis de contenido temático de la literatura se exponen los siguientes resultados: 1) el uso de las tecnologías digitales provoca efectos positivo y negativos en los jóvenes, pero se manifiestan diferencias significativas en el número de publicaciones y los efectos descritos; 2) Durante la Pandemia se agudizan los problemas de salud mental en los jóvenes que utilizan las tecnologías por causas asociadas al confinamiento, ambientes de aprendizaje y las propias del miedo al contagio.
