Vodafone Digital pledge

The Digital Family Pledge is a free online safety tool created for families by Vodafone. It aims to helps us think about setting good digital habits at home.

 

The Pledge covers four important topics: screen time, online bullying, social media, and gaming – and using a series of quiz like questions prompts families to discuss and agree some rules on how to use tech and act online. The information is tailored for children 5-13 years.

 

Please click on the link below and discuss with your family at home. It only takes about 15 minutes to complete together and is best accessed on a tablet or mobile device.
