Online Predators

There is an epidemic of online sexual predators that hunt chat rooms for young children. They use the anonymity of the Internet to their advantage since they can be whomever they want. Many are master manipulators with skills that can cripple any child's sense of awareness.

 

I worked in collaboration with the Milford and Upton Police Force to put together an online campaign targeted to elementary grades for use in the classroom. This campaign consists of an app, a card game, and a board game that functions as a leave behind in order to aid teachers with future, fun classroom interactive instruction on this most important topic.

 

The interactive Website is based off the game Guess Who. Instead the children have to guess who is the predator. Whilst the presentation is going on, students hold up the cards of the characters that they think are either predator or prey.

 

I (somehow) cut, folded, and assembled all printed pieces by hand for final presentation! Thomas Mayo of Blackstone Valley Technical High School printed all collateral for this campaign.

The cooler tones warn the children that they are in danger. While the warmer tones (if the children play their cards right) give the impression that they are safe.

The boardgame functions as a folded leave behind with a leaflet for instruction.
