Abstract

Today’s children spend considerable time online, searching and receiving information from various websites and apps. Article 17 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child adopted in 1989 lists that:

Every child has the right to reliable information from a variety of sources, and governments should encourage the media to provide information that children can understand. Governments must help protect children from materials that could harm.
The ability to guarantee this fundamental right for children is both enhanced and limited by algorithms. This Brief explains some key opportunities and threats of algorithms for young children’s learning and the important role of parents and educators in maximising their benefits.
