Information and communications technology (ICT) is part of our lives. We use it every day for study, work, entertainment, shopping and getting in touch with our family and friends. It is one of the quickest and easiest ways of finding information, sharing idea and working with other people.
And like everything, it has to be used safely and responsibly. As well as opportunities, there are also risks that we need to be aware of and guard against. As children get older they spend more and more of their waking hours connected to digital devices—impacting their reputations, learning opportunities, and futures.
This area is designed to provide you with information and links to a variety of different websites to help you understand the benefits and the risks.
