Major Challenges -Today The current internet safety issues focus on matters of identity (social networks, private data), exposure (offensive content, illegal content) and harmful practices (cyber bullying, grooming, excessive use). French awareness is above European average. Yet, not every child, parent or teacher can cope with safety issues online.
Major challenges - Tomorrow Multiplication of screens: connected TVs and mobile devices (phones and tablets), video games consoles and other gateways. Children at risk: generally isolated in their relation with Internet, lacking mentorships and often raised in difficult familial or social contexts. Preschool children. Peer to peer education. France has a long way to go, but consensus on the fact that it is key. Teaching the best way to approach illegal or harmful content.
