As educators, we are responsible for preparing children and youth for the 21st century.  However, as adults we also know that the internet can pose risks to today’s children and youth.

UNICEF’s report, Child Safety Online: global challenges and strategies, released today, reviews global evidence and practice, and answers the questions, “what are the risks to children online?” and “what are the most effective responses to make them safer?” The report exposes myths and provides evidence to equip policymakers, professionals, families and business to respond.

Take some time to review this report to better understand the issues and how we can work together to build a safer environment for young people online.
