Tensions are simmering in South Coast City and it's up to YOU to help keep the peace.
The Lost Summer is a game developed by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner aimed at 11 to 14-year-olds to help teach the social and emotional soft skills required to optimise positive behaviours online.
The game is made up of 30 minute chapters, with each focusing on a key area of digital intelligence:
RESPECT - acting respectfully towards others, acknowledging and appreciating that others may have different cultures, backgrounds and/or points of view.
CRITICAL THINKING - thinking critically about what you see online and asking questions to identify and analyse information that may seek to exploit or misinform.
RESILIENCE - being resilient and responding with strength and maturity when risks are encountered online.
RESPONSIBILITY - being responsible about what you say and do by engaging positively with others and being accountable for your behaviour.
EMPATHY - being empathetic to others and using emotional intelligence to respect opinions, embrace diversity of opinion and freedom of speech.
