Abstract


Although Internet Addiction is not listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, it is an increasingly prevalent problem that affects a lot of people, including pupils. Erasmus+ Strategic partnerships, which are co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union, allow schools to form partnerships that work on projects that are usually not covered by curricula. A group of six schools formed such a partnership to study the responsible use of the Internet. Quite naturally, one of the goals of the project was to see if pupils are addicted to Internet and if they are to help them with all possible ways. Indeed, we have found that some pupils suffer from Internet addiction and we helped the general population to become less addicted to Internet.
