Digital awareness resource

26 June 2018

HMC and Digital Awareness UK have produced a ground-breaking video and lesson plans on digital addiction which they are sharing with all schools. The resources are part of their Tech Control campaign to help children and young people use mobile devices healthily and wisely. In the first instance, they are being specifically offered to schools and colleges via ASCL.

Commenting on the resources ASCL General Secretary Geoff Barton said: "We all know the pressures added to modern life by social media. HMC research shows just how challenging many young people are finding it. That’s why ASCL is delighted to endorse HMC’s ground-breaking work in this area, and to make the Tech Control resources available to all our members working in the full range of schools and colleges. Every child is likely to benefit from this guidance on how to regain a sense of control over modern technology and the apparently endless new demands social media can create."
