The OECD committee adopted the “Recommendation on the Protection of Children Online” in February 2012. It recommended establishing an appropriate online environmental policy for children, based on actual data. Arising from the international movement, the Internet Literacy Assessment Indicator for Students (ILAS) and its tests were developed; this tool aims to ensure safe and secure Internet use among 15-year-old students. This study analyzes national research data from ILAS to explore the relationship between students' backgrounds and online literacy. The results have revealed several political challenges, including the need for policies on educational awareness in low literacy areas, regional literacy differences, and the need to support children in learning to avoid risk.
