Communication Strategy of the Learning Action Partnership approved

Sofia, September 14, 2017

‘The children use internet more often, earlier and more mobile. With the increasing usage, the risks are increasing. The fact that children are more and more online doesn’t make them more digital/media literate. Social media are a must even among the youngest, at the same time аn alarmingly high percentage of smaller children profiles are public. Children hardly define whether information is true or false. The children are online the most time via smart phones – 80,6% (2016), to compare – during 2010 the percentage was 45%. They are running into harmful contents more and more. The role of parents, school and friends is of high importance.’ These are some of the conclusions of the National representative research among children aged 9 to 17, who are using internet, conducted in 2016 by Foundation Applied Research and Communication and presented to the LAP meeting.
