The aim of this project, conducted within the nifbe (Lower Saxony Institute for Early Childhood Education and Development) framework, was to support parents of young children. Often, these parents do not have the knowledge about the activities and games that may be beneficial for their children - but at the same time, they do often not have enough spare time to inform themselves and do not know where they could do this if they wanted to. In the project, which was conducted by the group of Prof. Pinkwart together with the research group of Prof. Jörg Müller at TU Clausthal and the KVHS Goslar, we designed, implemented and evaluated a combination of a web-based community platform with mobile phone access and field activities. We showed that these two forms of interaction have synergy effects in that use of the web information system may lead to increased participation in presence activities, and vice versa.
