This month, Ofcom published its “Children and parents: Media use and attitudes report 2019,” that reveals the use of technology by children and young people aged between 5 and 15-years-old – and also looks at the access of media by 3 and 4-year-olds.

In an ideal world, the internet would be safe for everyone to use. As it is, it’s a predominantly adult space that our children access regularly. If we, as adults (at home or in school), have put the safeguards in place to create a protected environment for them to do so safely, that’s a good start – but, as we know, that’s not the case for every child, some of whom are free (from a very young age) to go online at will on their own devices.

With Bett upon us, it’s a great time to be thinking about what next for education technology. As you would expect, there has been a plethora of different articles and posts highlighting the best way to make the most of Bett. I should know as I’ve written enough of them over the years.
In this short post though, I thought I would provide you with a list of pertinent questions you should ....Read more

A common theme that has run throughout 2019 is people saying, “I don’t know where the year has gone” or “The weeks are just flying by!”. And so they have, at an alarming rate, and we now find ourselves with Christmas around the corner and the end of the year (and decade) not far behind. What happened?!
Well, the NetSupport team was busy, busy, busy. We’ve attended tons of shows throughout the year, which is always a great opportunity to both connect with our existing customers and chat to those who are interested in what our solutions can do for ....Read more
