Children and Parents – Ofcom – media use and attitudes report oct 2013

Posted by LibeRaCe on October 3, 2013

See on Scoop.itESafety and Digital Citizenship

Llandrillo Library‘s insight:

The report also includes findings relating to parents’ views about their children’s media use, and the ways that parents seek to monitor or limit such use.

Among the report’s findings are:

·         There has been a decline in the number of 5–15s owning a mobile phone;

·         The use of tablet computers at home has tripled among 5-15s since last year;

·         Children’s preference for internet-enabled devices reflects changes in how and why they are going online;

·         For the first time there has been a decrease in the number of children with social networking profiles; and

·         Most parents of 5-15s say that they know enough to keep their child safe online; but around half of parents feel that their child knows more about the internet than they do.
