Back to school and back to homework. More and more students are using the internet at a younger age. I found this handy online game that is design to teach kids about internet marketing,spam, children's privacy and much more.
Privacy Playground: The First Adventure of the Three CyberPigs
In this game, designed for ages 8-10, the CyberPigs play on their favourite Web site and encounter marketing ploys, spam and a close encounter with a not-too-friendly wolf.
The purpose of the game is to teach kids how to spot online marketing strategies, protect their personal information and avoid online predators.
The accompanying Teacher's Guide explains how to play the game, gives background information on the issues of online marketing, spam and children's privacy and provides activities and handouts for classroom use.
