Online / Offline Gaming Advice – Ask About Games

September 30, 2009

gamingIncreasingly more and more favourite games are becoming available through online multi-player platforms, these can be great educational tools as well as just for enjoyment.

It’s one of the questions that comes up a lot on our E-Safety work to Parents / Carers and professionals, ‘How do you set controls and ensure safety’? So to have this new resource with practical tips, tricks and Q & A’s is incredibly helpful.

This UK site, www.askaboutgames.com really is a must have resource for professionals, parents/carers and players too. It’s got great advice on playing both on and offline games sensibly and is relevant for all ages and stages. There are downloadable pdfs of information sheets and I you can order hard copies of the credit card sized information booklets if you contact them or CEOP direct.
