The bCyberwise Monster Family game has been designed to be child-friendly, so it doesn’t contain ads, integration with social networks, or use any analytics or data collection tools. It also doesn’t feature any in-game purchases — so this is a game that’s truly dedicated to educating the kids of Australia.
The game will be incorporated as a free resource for school educators to support the bCyberwise module. The game content aligns with the Australian Curriculum; Health and Physical Education and English learning areas, and Information and Communication Technology capability.
The bCyberwise Monster Family game can be used as a classroom activity or a homework task, with students returning to the game in their own time on their own devices. Parents can access the game, play it with their children to learn about cybersafety together.
The online safety lessons and themes built into the bCyberwise Monster Family game reinforce messages from the bCyberwise school program and include topics such as protecting your personal information, positive respectful communication, how to deal with cyberbullying, seeking help from trusted adults, and safe behaviours when using the internet.
The next step in integrating digital technology into the Life Education Program to deliver important messages to children and parents in a fun and accessible way.
