Policy Press

This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions covering research on children and young people online, online opportunities, and online risks. It concludes by calling for more public debate over the opportunities for children. These are, perhaps surprisingly, often taken for granted rather than specified clearly, and when one or another advocate sets out their vision of ‘positive’ or ‘beneficial’ provision for children online, this is readily critiqued as adult centred, commercially biased, or elitist.

Keywords:   internet, online risks, online opportunities, young people
