2 MY REASON My research question was: DO AGE RESTRICTIONS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AFFECT USAGE OF CHILDREN?My reason for choosing this question was to see if KS3 students listened to what they were told online

14 My conclusionI have realised that the basis for this research question is that ‘Do Key Stage 3 students do as they’re told?’ which (if you ask any of the teachers near you) the answer is most of the time no. But they do realise online safety is for their own good and so they don’t do anything that gets themselves seriously hurt or in a lot of trouble.
