The Digital Family Pledge
Vodafone have created a new online safety resource; The Digital Family Pledge. It is a free online tool to help families (parents included!) set good digital habits. The Pledge covers four important topics: screen time, online bullying, social media and gaming. It uses a series of quiz like questions and prompts families to discuss and agree some rules on how to act and use technology and the internet. The information is tailored towards 5 – 13 year olds.
