Time for some monkey business - Apestaartjaren 6 research (online behaviour of the Flemish youth age 12 - 18)
- Belgian Safer Internet Centre
Today, 92 per cent of Flemish youth (12-18 years old) have their own smartphone. For them, it is their most important digital device. Young people use their smartphone in a very multifunctional way: to follow current events and to discuss homework, but also to game, stream music, and to chat. With this, smartphones slowly suppress game consoles and MP3 players.
As announced in a previous edition of the BIK bulletin, the recent launch of a parenting and digital media blog from LSE gives parenting advocates, researchers and parents themselves easy access to cutting-edge research, including from LSE's own current project on Parenting for a Digital Future.
