Through the Wild Web Woods

In an effort to teach children about potential dangers online and how to avoid them, the Council of Europe has offers a game called Through the  Wild Web Woods. Through the Wild Web Woods is designed for students ages seven through ten to learn how to spot danger on the Internet and what to do when they do spot danger on the Internet. The game is available in twenty-four languages.

Applications for Education 
Through the Wild Web Woods is an activity that all elementary school kids should complete before exploring the Internet. Even though the game is designed with elementary school students in mind, I actually had a high school student try the game and she agreed that middle school and high school students could learn from the game too.
