Young Scot iRights: Show Your Support

At a National Digital Learning Forum meeting on 26th November, YoungScot made a presentation on iRights.

iRights is a framework of five principles to enable children and young people to access the internet ‘creatively, knowledgeably and fearlessly’. The five iRights are:

  • The right to remove
  • The right to know
  • The right to safety and support
  • The right to make informed and conscious choices
  • The right to digital literacy

You can find out more about this work by visiting YoungScot and iRights.

  1. I support the iRights agenda because………organisations should not assume they have ownership of the personal information that young people post online. iRights is a powerful way of reminding them of this and of holding them to account.

  2. I support the iRights agenda because……it looks to get the right balance between freedom for young persons to experiment with digital technologies and for them to be given adequate protection as they engage in this. What is great about iRights is the focus on both access and safety. Too often these get completely separated!
