Be honest, do you read T&Cs?

The Children’s Commissioner has launched the next step in her drive to give children the power, information and resilience they need to thrive in the digital world.

In ‘Growing Up Digital’ she called for mandatory Digital Citizenship in schools.  The child-friendly guide & teacher resource we have developed with TES and the privacy law firm Schillings will help children to understand what they are signing up to when they use Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat and WhatsApp and be a valuable resource for thousands of teachers across the country.

Children have the right to know what they are signing up to, in clear, simple, easy to understand language so that they can make the most of the fantastic opportunities social media and the internet can bring.
