Children’s Online Content Worksheet

As part of its support for Safer Internet Day on Tuesday 7 February, Ofcom has today published a children’s online content worksheet created in collaboration with Childnet.

These worksheets are for children to use in school, or at home with parents, to help prompt important discussions about being safe online.

Ofcom has a duty to promote and carry out media literacy research. As part of this work, we talk to children aged 3-15 about how they use and think about media, including the internet. We also talk to parents and carers about how they keep children safe when using different types of media.

Media literacy means people have the skills, knowledge and understanding to make full use of the opportunities presented by communications services, both new and traditional. All of Ofcom’s media literacy research is available online.
