Masterclass overview

We know that children and young people in general are going online much earlier, which is changing how they view the world and each other. This can make it hard for them to differentiate between fantasy and reality and it can change how they engage with the adults who care for them. With a soaring rise in social media platforms, there is also the constant pressure to keep up with family, friends and current trends/news across apps such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, TikTok and Snapchat.
