What impact have lockdowns, remote learning and increased screen time had on children’s digital habits? Our #WakeUpWednesday guide has the details.

A free online safety guide unpacking the Ofcom 'Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes' Report 2020/21.

Ofcom’s annual ‘Children and Parents: Media Use and Attitudes’ report aims to provide a comprehensive picture of how young people use and experience the internet in any given year. The 2021 edition differs from its predecessors, of course, because it covers three periods of national lockdown. With remote learning affecting children’s digital behaviours, studies like this are more important than ever to recognise digital dangers, understand media experiences and identify who is being left behind in the online world.

In the guide you'll find information on areas including children's online activities, popular apps and parental concerns.
