 The main objective of the project is to find out through a nation-wide representative survey how the use of modern information technologies is reflected in the lives of children and their parents. Survey provided answers to a number of questions, such as:

  • how much time do children spend on the Internet,
  • what do they do there,
  • what sites do they visit,
  • what experience do they have,
  • whether they are aware of the risks and dangers they may encounter on the Internet.

On the other hand, survey focused on attitudes and behavior of parents in this area. For example:

  • how and for which purpose are information technologies used,
  • how do parents have an overview of what their children do on the Internet,
  • what are their attitudes to threats and the negative impact of information technology on children.

The results of the project represent further continuation of the reflection of current development trends and problems in the field of informatization of society.
