Sending Out Big Thank Yous To Our Sponsors

We cant say it enough: thank you so much to our sponsors who have contributed and supported us through the conception and launch of our BeSeen mobile app. Watch our video featuring WWK President Judi Westberg-Warren extending her thanks to our sponsors.

BeSeen was created by Carnegie Mellon University and Web Wise Kids-- with the support of CTIA, Verizon Foundation and TrendMicro-- to teach youth how to be responsible in social networks by securing their private and personal information, protecting their online reputation and defending their peers.

This online safety mobile application is a single-player game that simulates a social networking website. The player creates a profile and starts earning “friend” characters and interacting with them. They learn about others through their posts and help them through challenges in order to win awards and make new friends.

In BeSeen, the ultimate quest is to make friends. At first, that is a matter of getting involved in school activities, but as more friends join a social circle, they bring their problems with them. To keep friends and make more, it’s important not only to be involved but also to be a good friend.

You can learn more about BeSeen or download the free lesson materials on the Web Wise Kids website.
