8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

It could be said that critical thinking is at the heart of dispelling great myths about our world and changing the way a society views and acts in their world.
