As more and more children are accessing the internet with mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, this raises various questions regarding the risks versus the benefits. Of course, access to useful educational information is of tremendous value, but there are potential dangers involved if children have access to everything that the internet offers. A new project called Net Children Go Mobile, a project supported by the London School of Economics and co-funded by the European Commision’s Safe Internet Programme, has been set up to study this subject in great detail, with the aim of more fully understanding children’s use of mobile technology and the impact it has on their lives.
