As more and more children are now getting their own mobile devices (particularly in Key Stage 2), I would like to draw your attention to an App recently launched by the BBC called `Own It'.
The app gives children `nudges' and advice when their online behaviour strays outside the norm.
Youngsters can access the app when they're looking for help but it is always on-hand to give them instant, on-screen advice and support in the moment they need it.
This will include:
° How messages and the use of certain words could be perceived by others, before they hit send
° Tracking their mood over time - and guidance on how to improve the situation if it's needed
° Whether they should share their mobile number on social media before they do so, and why they might want to think twice
° Snack-able info on topics like using phones late at night, and how it affects their wellbeing

We hope that you find it useful.
