Decreasing young people's vulnerabilities online

Digitally Empowering Young People is a project led by researchers at the University of Warwick that set out to explore how we can decrease children and young people’s vulnerabilities online.

The research revealed

  • Online safety education included little acknowledgement of the opportunities the Internet has to offer.

  • Developing and maintaining healthy and positive relationships is integral to keeping children and young people safe online.

  • Historical approaches and language used within online safety education has served to enhance vulnerabilities and reinforce a culture of victim blaming.

  • There is a need for “educational change”.
