CyberSense is Intern Matters new app designed to help parents and carers talk about online safety issues with their children to ensure that they make smart choices to stay safe online.
The app is aimed at children aged between 8-10 to help them think about what they would do if they were faced with different situations online; from cyberbullying to sharing content with someone they don’t know.
The App includes a quiz that is played on a tablet with a split screen. This is mainly to encourage parents/carers and children to answer the questions at the same time to help create talking points around different e-Safety scenarios. At the end of each quiz, depending on how many question have been answered correctly, you are rewarded with a specific amount time to play a fun game together.
The app is a great way for parents/carers to get talking with their children about practical ways to be resilient and get the best out of the internet. Schools and settings may wish to highlight this app to their communities.
