The Internet became the core of social life with social media. We trust in the positive energy and influence of social work to guide children and young people at risk safely through the challenges and support them to benefit from the great advantages of social media.

Dear Readers,
one of the tasks of knowledge enhancement projects such as SocialWeb - SocialWork is to measure the effectiveness of a certain approach - evaluation plays therefore a main role in the project and constitutes the preceding and following steps to the development of the training curriculum and the implementation of the training campaign. Currently, SocialWeb - SocialWork is in the middle of its evaluation to measure the training effects on the daily activities and routines of professionals working with children and youths at risk and to assess the role they can play in improving online safety of their young clientele. Please enjoy reading the detailed report on the project's evaluation steps and its findings.

Taking a look back on last fall, we would like to highlight our successful session "A better Internet: the role of intermediaries in managing risks for vulnerable users" at the 2013 edition of the Safer Internet Forum. In the format of an Appreciative Inquiry Session (AIS), this workshop strived to identify the strengths, the potential, the positive energy and the influence of social work on children’s and youths’ Internet safety. You are invited to read the short report on our session.

Finally, we would like to announce the final conference of SocialWeb - SocialWork on the 8th April 2014 and invite you to come to Berlin for this event of networking across Europe. High-level experts, stakeholders and professionals working in the field of children and youths at risk on European and international level will exchange experiences and discuss how to strengthen the efforts to keep the target group of vulnerable children and youths safe online. We would be delighted to welcome you in Berlin - please register here free of charge.

Carolin Bretl,
project manager
