What is Digital Resilience? Giving kids a sense of control over their digital lives
The amount of information, content, and contacts available at our fingertips is growing by the second.
And if this great data sprawl can be at times exciting, confusing, and maybe even a little scary for an adult, imagine the challenges that our children face when they take their first steps into the digital world.
For example, did you know that over a quarter of all 10 year olds have a social media profile? *
Or that only 1 in 8 12 to 15 year-olds who have seen something worrying or nasty online have gone on to report it? *
Introducing Digital Resilience
As technology evolves, it’s important that we have the right support and resources to help our children learn how to explore technology safely.
Working with our partners at Internet Matters, we’d like to introduce you to Digital Resilience – methods and tips to help children prepare for any issues they may face on line, and how to learn and recover from them.
We’ve put together got some great guides for parents of children of all age groups that we’ll feature during the week.
