From the UNICEF Office of Research Blog:
Worldwide, children’s digital activities and opportunities are growing at an exponential rate. Yet many of the creative, informative, interactive and participatory features of the digital environment remain substantially underused, especially in lower-income countries and among the most marginalized children. Moreover, amid endless potential, the internet can also compound offline risks and negative experiences such as unwanted sexual solicitation, bullying and harassment, and exposure to pornography and other potentially harmful materials.
