(Featured resource)To help parents know how to keep their children safe online, NSPCC and O2 have developed Net Aware.
With new apps, services and social networks popping up all of the time, NetAware is the ‘go to’ place for parents, carers and educational professionals to check up on the features, and possible concerns, about each of them.
(Featured resource)The Digital 5-a-Day provides a simple framework that reflects the concerns of parents/carers as well as children’s behaviours and needs. It can also act as a base for family agreements about internet and digital device use throughout both the holiday and term time.

As well as transformational benefits there are also risks. Research is only in its early stages; we are still very much learning about the full impact of IT and both its positive and negative effects. This webpage covers when children start using social media, and what schools can do.
