Teen media literacy

This week Ofcom released a survey of young people's media use (covering children aged 8-15). Striking amongst its findings was the wider use of media among girls than boys - with the exception of interactive games. Girls aged 11-15 are more likely than boys of the same age to own a mobile phone, use the internet for communication and read newspapers and magazines. More boys than girls have TVs in their bedrooms.

See these patterns intensify as world World Cup fever sets in.
