Children’s use of the internet: literature review

The UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) has published a literature review looking at children’s use of the internet, focussing on trends and emerging issues, and the online risk of harm to children and implications for safety policy and practice. Findings from the review include: children’s top worries online are pornography and violence, there is an emerging consensus that those already at risk offline are more likely to be at risk and vulnerable online, and there are currently very few independently evaluated online safety initiatives.
