MPP Stephen Carrick Davies Munch, Poke, Ping (MPP) * is a project which explores how social media and mobile phone technology affects young people’s peer relationships, behaviour and identity and how they cope when there is conflict online. The project is run by e-safety and child advocate Stephen Carrick-Davies. The project works directly with young people who are, or who feel, excluded and uses film-making to help ‘unlock’ and explore young people’s experience of growing up online. All the films on this website have been devised and acted by young people who have been excluded from main-stream school and are taught in Pupil Referral Units. What is unique about this project is that through the intensive workshops and film-making we have been able to caputre the authentic voices of young people, and then contrast these views with those from the dedicated staff who we filmed sharing about how they deal with these issues in their professional practice.

Teaching digital citizenship across the whole curriculum By Dennis Pierce September 15th, 2015 Teaching digital citizenship as a “one-off event” doesn’t lead to changes in behavior, experts say When author and IT director Mike Ribble talks about the importance of teaching students appropriate online behavior, he likes to share a few eye-opening statistics. According to Common Sense Media’s study “Zero to Eight: Children’s Media Use in America,” the percentage of children ages eight and under who’ve used a mobile device nearly doubled from 2011 to 2013, from 38 percent to 72 percent. What’s more, about two in five children under the age of two have used a mobile device. “Kids are coming to school having already had some contact with technology,” said Ribble, who works for the Manhattan-Ogden Unified School District 383 in Kansas.
