There is a constant and fast paced evolution of Computing within our society as a whole.
Currently the internet technologies children and young people are using both inside and outside of the classroom include: websites, Learning Platforms and Virtual Learning Environments, e-mail and instant messaging, chat rooms and social networking, blogs and wikis, podcasting, video broadcasting, music downloading, gaming, mobile/ smart phones with text, video and/ or web functionality and other mobile devices with web functionality
Whilst exciting and beneficial both in and out of the context of education, much Computing, particularly web-based resources, are not consistently policed. All users need to be aware of the range of risks associated with the use of these Internet technologies.
