Children in the Web

Children in the Web

 

Project Children in the Web was created on the basis of social demand, as at the time of its creation, there was no literature that would comprehensively name the risks of communication via modern technology.

Our goal was to develop a handbook that could be used by teachers, youth workers, police or helplines in further education process. Publication Children in the Web provides an overview of the main threats in cyberspace and ways to protect our children and ourselves against them. Each chapter focuses on one area of threats in cyberspace. In each chapter there are also numerous interactive activities and games enhancing the experience and knowledge. In addition to naming the threats, project Children in the Web also highlights other available prevention tools and resources for free expert advice.

Project Children in the Web received great reviews from teachers, youth workers and police officers who use it either for preventive lecturing or regular lessons of informatics and ethics in primary, secondary schools and preschools, but also in continuing education. The book has been translated into English and Hungarian language. It is easily applicable to other Member States and is updated annually. Number of 30 000 copies of the Children in the Web a year has been distributed and approximately 200 000 copies have been downloaded since the start of the project.

 

The project started in 2013 and is still running.
