Super Duper

A game that allows young people to experience first hand the tools, scams and techniques that can influence them online – a guerrilla approach to e-safety that combines entertainment and education.

• The player is cast in an active participant role – they get duped by different techniques and scams in the game

• This has a ‘vaccination effect’ – young people experience being tricked and misled, but as a result are able to recognise some of the potential dangers and risks online, so they can protect themselves in the future

• Co-design and test it with young people to ensure it’s entertaining, engaging and meaningful

• Tried and tested process – we successfully used a vaccination approach to educate using films in our Vampire Conspiracy Project
