Reviews for Web Wise Kids, Inc.
Web Wise Kids does an amazing job of encouraging children to think about their tech decisions. Everything from texting to sexting to online bullying is covered when students participate in one of their computer games. The kids really learn and the teachers are spared the agony of lecturing them about safety issues. Highly recommended! Also, it is easy to use because their is nothing that has to be photocopied or anything. It is easy for teachers to use.

Game based learning is fun ! This is why learning technology safety with Web Wise Kids resources is fun! Our whole family has benefitted. Cell phones – my teens live by them – for telling time, texting friends, taking pictures, posting to Facebook, for communicating with teachers and coaches – and Web Wise Kids’ game, “It’s Your Call” has served as a reference point and reminder that cell phones are valuable tools and that texts and photos are permanent - send with care. My teens rolled their eyes when I sat them down to play “MISSING.” But it wasn’t long before all three of us were grabbing the mouse and keyboard to try to solve the codes and get past the game levels that gained entry to the next section (good thing one of us is a ‘gamer!’). This game exemplified what an online predator might say or do – so that my teens might recognize similar behavior when online. “Wired With Wisdom” – I like the ‘bite-size’ game segments that this offers busy parents, like me.
Web Wise Kids games are like good books that you re-read again and again.
