RESOURCES

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our screen time has increased around 20 to 30%.

 

A report from the Global Web Index has shown that children and teenagers are connected to the internet almost 9 hours every day.

But, do we know what they are doing? What are the benefits and risks of being online? and how we can potentialize the benefits while we reduce the risks?
