  • Netsafe – New research reveals the online lives of NZ kids

    Netsafe has released Ngā taiohi matihiko o Aotearoa - New Zealand Kids Online looking at the online experiences of Kiwi kids and their confidence in their online safety skills.

    Summary of findings
    • Most New Zealand children have frequent access to the internet, with 77% saying they can often or always go online.
    • The most common places for children to access the internet are at home (96%) and at school (89%).
    • Children use multiple, preferably portable, digital devices to go online. Overall the most commonly used devices are laptop or notebook computers (76%), and smartphones (72%). However, among older children (15-17 years) smartphones are the most frequently used device (93%).
    • Most children said they are confident about their digital skills. However, younger children (9-11 years) are less so than other age groups, particularly in regard to managing privacy.
    • Most children use the internet for entertainment, learning, and socialising, e.g. 90% watched video clips at least once a week. However, children are much less likely to go online for community engagement, civic participation and creative opportunities, e.g. 15% created and shared their own video or music.
    • Social media is ubiquitous among children of all ages who use these tools primarily for socialising and entertainment. There are some gender differences regarding social interaction through social media.
