Every day new apps and digital tools emerge. Do you know them all? Can you keep up? Do you really understand the need for children to virtually connect? Who will teach them how to navigate in this digital world?
Children want to play, learn and grow together, even when they're not at school. In the virtual world, social interactions happen around the clock, every day of the year. To these 'digital natives', these interactions are truly real.
How can we make use of the advantages of social online learning without allowing our youngest, most vulnerable children of 3 to 12 years to roam around unsupervised on websites and apps that might not be appropriate for them?
