Global kids online

A majority of children say they learn something new online at least every week, but large numbers still face risks online, according to a report by a new initiative, Global Kids Online, produced by the UNICEF Office of Research and the London School of Economics. The project, launched at the Children’s Lives in the Digital Age seminar held at UNICEF in New York, aims to build a global network of researchers investigating the risks and opportunities of child internet use, and a website is making research tools freely available worldwide. Another finding is that although a majority of children value the internet as a learning tool, they are rarely able to use it at school or to receive guidance from their teachers on how to use it.
