Keeping children safe online at home during school closure:
BBC Own It App updated for COVID-19
The BBC's Own It app helps young people new to social media manage their well-being, whilst empowering children to make smart choices, and helping them to lead a positive life online.
The Own It app and keyboard lets children:
· get advice whenever they type
· track their feelings
· win badges as they reflect
· find help when they need it
· taking quizzes to learn more about themselves
The app also includes a special keyboard to use which offers helpful tips and friendly advice to children when they need it.
The app can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play.
While schools are closed, LGfL are publishing questions, tips or challenges for Primary pupils to help them stay safe at home and on their devices. Go to digisafedaily.lgfl.net for the daily publications.
