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.
Teacher resources can be downloaded from http://esafety.gov.au/tls
This release contains a host of updates and fixes to issues we've identified.
Ratings and Reviews
It is a good game and it is a very good experience but the problem is that when you walk forward you walk sideways
Not enough planes
The game is very simple and it is very easy to pick the right answer, and you need some more freedom in the game to make it a better game.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback. In developing the game, we tested the content with hundreds of Australian school students. While we know we can’t meet the specific needs or level of ability of all users, we do hope the content and the messages of the game resonate on some level with all those who play it. We expect it will be used predominantly by teachers to initiate discussions with students about social and emotional skills online.
