Should we include more digital technologies in teaching?
7th November 2019
Montenegro is the first Global Kids Online country to produce comparable data on digital skills including children, parents and teachers. A national survey conducted by Ipsos, supported by UNICEF and Telenor, found that almost all teachers (94%) in Montenegrin primary and secondary schools use the internet on a daily basis. Educators tend to have better digital skills than children and parents. While teachers agree that the use of technologies improves the quality of education, many struggle to integrate diverse ways of using digital media in the learning process.

5th August 2019
A survey of 2,825 Czech children showed that 84% access the internet daily using their mobile phones and only 45% use a computer.

How does this affect their experiences and exposure to risk?
