As the internet becomes more important to us and our children as a social space. It is important to develop a sense of how we can all use it to support our lives, but at the same time to guard against negative influences that exist there. Digital Wellbeing relates to how we can turn the internet into a positive force within our lives, and can aid our mental health. The SWGfL has developed a page designed to raise awareness of Digital Wellbeing and good practice while engaging online. On the page they have an interesting video on the subject, a discussion on the importance of Digital Wellbeing at school and more. To take a look at this fascinating page please follow the link.

There are 1000’s of applications children use, many with the potential of creating a safeguarding concern and making a child vulnerable online.

Common Sense Media is a great resource for getting to know about not just the apps available, but for all media that children and young people use, watch, read, or have access to.
