Social Worlds / ICT

It's been a while since I recommended any publications from the Centre for Research on the Wider Benefits of Learning, so today's post contains details of two reports which they have recently released:
  • The Importance of Social Worlds: an Investigation of Peer Relationships examines children in primary schools, and how they form relationships with those around them. The wide ranging report looks at friendships, bullying, and how a child's early development can influence their ability to interact with their peers.
  • Use of ICT by Young People in England was published in May, and investigates whether socioeconomic or demographic factors can impact upon young people's usage of ICT, and the effect that this may have on their future career prospects or role as citizens.
