New technologies have become integral to the lives of children and young people in today’s society, both within schools and in their lives outside school. The internet and other digital information and communications technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone. These technologies can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and stimulate awareness of context to promote effective learning. Young people should have an entitlement to safe internet access at all times.

Screen Time – How much is too much
Some researchers recommend that children take regular screen breaks whereby for every 40 minutes they spend in front of a screen, they spend an hour away from them (for under 10 year olds).
It is also fair to suggest that not all forms of screen use are equal, as some can provide far more positive stimulation and learning experiences than others.
If limiting screen time is something you’d like to introduce, it can be beneficial to discuss the reasons for this with your children. When implementing screen breaks, a five-minute warning can be helpful before switching off.
It is also important to remember to be a positive role model when trying to introduce screen breaks and ensure that we ourselves are not missing out on opportunities to build positive relationships by being on our own devices.
