With the launch of the CO:RE Knowledge Base, we want to contribute from a scientific perspective to making the internet a better place. To achieve that, an overview of the available data, research and evidence on children’s and young people’s online experiences was a prerequisite. Only through the systematised collation of this existing knowledge, it can serve as a basis of informed decision making to all stakeholder groups involved.
Collating scattered knowledge: Together for a better internet!
For this year’s Safer Internet Day (SID), we are proud to present the recently launched Beta version of the CO:RE Knowledge Base! It was developed together with stakeholders in education, policy and research and offers a solid base of timely research, evidence and resources to actors in pedagogical and political decision-making. To date, the CO:RE Evidence Base collates more than 1,800 publications and 1,300 studies from over 30 countries, all annotated along research-practical, educational and policy-relevant parameters. Beyond that, the knowledge base offers different resources and materials such as toolkits on theories, methods and ethical questions related to research in the field of children and young people in digital environments, evidence-based blog posts, videos, and much more. In the coming months, the CO:RE Knowledge Base will be further refined, expanded and complemented successively.
