Through the Wild Web Woods

From Free Technology for Teachers comes this information about a game which warns children about the dangers of the internet. This is the way Richard Byrne describes the game:

"In an effort to teach children about potential dangers online and how to avoid them, the Council of Europe 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, although students of all ages, including adults, can benefit greatly from it. The game is available in twenty-four languages."

The English language learner will have to read lots of instructions and get familiar with a lot of vocabulary while playing, so the game is also interesting for us from this perspective.
