Research output: Contribution to journalConference article in journalResearchpeer-review


The paper presents research on Danish children’s use of the Internet. Data from 2000 to 2002 shows that the level of Internet use is stabile but high compared to other European countries. Today, nearly all children have access to a computer at home. Games are the most popular activity to use the computer for (more boys than girls enjoy this activity) followed by Internet surfing. Girls seem to be more interested in searching for information in books and printed material than on the Internet. Approximately 40% are active on the Internet and the most popular activity is surfing for fun, sending e-mails, gathering information for schoolwork and visiting chat rooms.
