Based on the range and types of children's online activities this chapter analyses how and with which outcome children use the online opportunities. The ‘ladder of opportunities’ approach is based on the notion that children can be divided into groups based on the range of opportunities used by a particular child moving from information-related sources to communication to advanced uses, ending with online content creation practised by only a few.
