One of the links we have shared is to a website called ThinkuKnow and in particular a set of 15 minute resources that are added to on a weekly basis and address a wide variety of issues ranging from right to online privacy to live streaming tweets- https://www.btg.ac/IT-support/.
Here we also share a new link on our website called Parent Info, which aims to provide help and advice for families in a digital world. This week the website focuses in on the TikTok app and how despite only launching in 2018, the app has enjoyed a dramatic rise to become one of the most popular social media apps on the planet.
