For parents, carers and other interested adults
Young people also consistently say that they want opportunities for private and self-directed learning and guidance. This can be disconcerting for adults, who worry about who young people are communicating with and what information they are encountering. People and information online can be variable in quality and reliability, and of course there are risks of exploitation and misinformation.
However, like it or not, young people are consulting the internet for educational purposes – and often, they’re turning to unhealthy, unreliable and unsafe sources. Fumble is unabashed in being an alternative to this.
