Growing up digital

Published on 4 January was: Children's Commisioner for England. (2017). Growing up Digital: A report from the Children's Commissioner's Growing Up Digital Taskforce. London: Children's Commisioner for England.
This short (23 page) report proposes 3 innovations: "creation of a digital citizenship programme, to be compulsory in every school [age] 4-14"; simplifying the Terms and Conditions that service providers present to children (there is an example of such a simplification of the Instagram T&C - 17 pages is boiled down to 1 dense page); and the introduction of a Children's Digital Ombudsman. There is no mention of information literacy.
