Discussion of key issues of children's Internet use identified by survey research. Interviews with children and parents provide high quality data to address major controversies surrounding the opportunities and risks of Internet use by children.

This Webcast provides a discussion of some of the key issues identified through survey research on the use of the Internet by children. Interviews with children and parents provide higher quality data than is often available to address major controversies surrounding the opportunities and risks of Internet use by children.

The discussion will be largely directed by issues arising from the paper ‘Active participation or just more information? Young people’s take-up of opportunities to act and interact on the Internet’ by Sonia Livingstone, Magdalena Bober and Ellen Helsper (Information, Communication & Society, September 2005, 8:287-314).

This event is part of a series of Webcasts linked to the Information, Communication & Society (iCS) Journal.
