The London Grid for Learning has called for technology companies to embrace calls for change and put the safety of children first in all developments in light of findings from its latest report.

Mark Bentley, online safety and safeguarding manager from the London Grid for Learning, talks to QA Education about the NSPCC’s new survey on children’s online activity.

How has children’s online activity changed in the last 24 months since the last survey?

One of the biggest trends we’re seeing is the increased popularity of live streaming. Live streaming allows users to see events unfold literally as they happen, as well as broadcast their own lives for friends to watch. 

London Grid for Learning promotes new initiatives;  DigiSafe, CyberProtect, Let’s Get Digital and Bridge of the Divide, as well as new educational content for KS2 history, English and art
