As Safer Internet Day arrives tomorrow (February 5, 2019), with its theme of using technology responsibly, respectfully, critically and creatively, Dr Bex Lewis, Senior Lecturer in Digital Marketing at Manchester Metropolitan University, and author of Raising Children in a Digital Age (Lion Hudson, 2014), reflects back on the themes of the stories that she has been asked to comment upon in the press this past year.
This year, Safer Internet Day focuses upon encouraging young people to explore how they ask, give, and receive consent online, within friendships or relationships, sharing content or managing their privacy and data to ensure that they take control of their online lives, and use the positive power of the internet for good.
