Looking ahead to a “post-Online Safety Bill world” Vicki and Geraldine ask about some issues which the future might bring. 

They cover the metaverse – or, as Vicki prefers to call it, online immersive experiences – and consider how much money children are spending, making, and losing online. 

They also look at the implications of AI for children’s privacy, for example – how much user data will we share with a chatbot who feels ‘real’? And how can these tools impact education?
