Life in lockdown



The Covid-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the lives of everyone. For children in particular, education, socialisation and other formative experiences have been disrupted or suspended, leading to changes and developments in digital behaviours.

This report presents findings from a Covid-19-specific wave of our longitudinal Children’s Media Lives study, which aimed to get an insight into the media lives of children during the Covid-19 pandemic and the months spent in lockdown.
