The materials were created as part of the KABU project: The "info app for kids" of the same name was launched two years ago, and since then children of primary school age have been entertained there with regularly published articles. Now KABU is experiencing its first offline adventures in the form of a small puzzle book and accompanying worksheets for schools.
KABU's campsite adventures - A puzzle book about the Internet
The story of the booklet is quickly summarized: KABU and his digital friend Robo want to spend a nice vacation day at the campground. Just like on the Internet, there are great attractions and offers there, but there are also problems lurking. The two friends get into tricky situations that can happen in the world of cell phones and computers: There are viruses in the food tent, the games tent is teeming with ads - and how does KABU get the password for the relaxation tent to free Robo?
In "KABU's Campsite Adventure," children discover the secrets of the Internet in a playful way. The campsite reflects the challenges of our digital society. In addition to the information in the KABU app, media educational puzzles and tasks are designed to sensitize children to the safe use of the Internet.
