Young people grow up in a technologically rich world. They are surrounded by ICT and use it extensively in school and out of school. ICT opens up a new world, a world that we should embrace and encourage. New technologies allow access to some of the most powerful communication, collaboration and research tools.
With the new opportunities that ICT brings there undoubtedly comes some risks. It is important that we make children aware of the risks and encourage them to adopt appropriate patterns of behaviour when using ICT.
