What’s in it for me as a parent?
As a parent, you may feel like there is a digital divide between you and your kids. Often, you may feel that your kids are no longer speaking the same language. No wonder “phishing” sounds like a recreational activity to you as parents!
However, how sure are you that your kids are using technology in a manner that does not expose them to risks related to online strangers and cyber bullies? Through this interactive game, you and your kids will experience the exact types of scenarios they might encounter on a daily basis as well as the methods to deal with these situations.
How does it look?
The game shows the daily life of a young teenage girl and the risks to which she is exposed to when using the Internet and social media sites. Players will progress through the game choosing what to do for each challenging situation that arises. During the game, the player will be faced with a number of decisions on how she uses her cell phone, and each incorrect decision made could expose her to cyber risks and therefore have a negative impact on her life. Players will have three chances to protect themselves from the manipulative powers of technology and the influences it has on behaviors. To win the game, players need to navigate all the scenarios and be left with at least one chance which is represented by a padlock.
The Cyber Threats game raises awareness of parents around the kind of threats that are lurking the web and provides practical tips for your kids to deal with real life scenarios in a fun and gamified way.
