A youth work matrix of risks related to online-usage and digitalization
Online-services hold, besides many opportunities for the users, also a number of risks and hazards, which can become relevant for individuals but also for whole societies. Some risks can be avoided by individuals. Other risks can hardly be solved on an individual level - or rather each individual would be overtaxed if they were held individually responsible.
Knowledge of potential risks, as well as of ways to contain risks at an individual or collective level, is thus also an essential area of educational work with children and adolescents. Accordingly, "Safety" is also a separate area among the training needs in the report of the EU expert group "Developing digital youth work". This method represents a contribution to this area.
