Called Pittsburgh’s biggest creative tech party of the year, the event is a streaming mash-up of networking, interactivity and inspiration. <br /><br /> The <a href="http://www.pghtech.org/networks/creative-technology/comingup.aspx">2012 Design, Art and Technology Award</a> will be handed out at the DATA awards ceremony on June 7, 2012 <br /><br /> <a href="http://www.webwisekids.org/usa">BeSeen</a>was selected as a finalist in the “Next Generation: Kids &amp; Creative Technology Category” recognizing the hard work and innovation of <a href="http://www.webwisekids.org">Web Wise Kids</a> and Carnegie Mellon University. <br /><br />Cross your fingers for us! <br /><br />If you are new to Web Wise Kids or BeSeen, here’s more about the game: <br /><br />BeSeen was created by Carnegie Mellon University and Web Wise Kids 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. <br /><br />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. <br /><br />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. <br /><br />You can learn more about BeSeen or download the free lesson materials on the <a href="http://www.webwisekids.org/usa">Web Wise Kids website</a>. <img src="http://wired.webwisekids.org/community/aggbug.aspx?PostID=109" width="1" height="1">IJIS Instituteteaching youth internet safetybeseen appdigital safetyeducational apps for kidseducational iphone gamesinternet safetycarnegie mellonfacebook safety for youthbeseenteaching kids internet safetysafety games androidteachers resources for internet safetyjudi warrendigital citizenshipeducator resources for internet safetyeducating children internetsocial network safetyfacebook safetycyberbullying preventiondigital safety childrendigital safetyfetybe seeninternet safety appinternet safety safetyeducation apps for childrenusa todayDATA awardsWeb Wise Kids is a 2012 Design, Art and Technology Awards Finalist! http://wired.webwisekids.org/community/blogs/webwisekids/archive/2012/04/24/web-wise-kids-is-a-2012-design-art-and-technology-awards-finalist.aspxTue, 24 Apr 2012 23:07:00 GMT09cf86c2-7053-47e4-82a4-a1ce52311037:40Judi Westberg-Warren, President0http://wired.webwisekids.org/community/blogs/webwisekids/rsscomments.aspx?PostID=40http://wired.webwisekids.org/community/blogs/webwisekids/archive/2012/04/24/web-wise-kids-is-a-2012-design-art-and-technology-awards-finalist.aspx#comments<a href="http://www.pghtech.org/">The Pittsburg Technology Council</a> has nominated <a href="http://webwisekids.org/usa/">Web Wise Kids’ BeSeen app</a> in their upcoming awards ceremony of the year. <br /><br /> The annual <a href="http://www.pghtech.org/events/default.aspx">DATA</a> (Design, Art, and Technology Awards) ceremony, which celebrates the best design, art and technology inventions in the nation, is split into seven categories: Innovation: The Changemakers, Maker: Design &amp; Making, Joystick: Games &amp; Applications, i-Con: Communications and Information Sharing, Media Arts: The Intersection of Art and Technology, Community: Art + Tech for our People and Places, and Next Generation: Kids &amp; Creative Technology. <a href="http://webwisekids.org/usa/">Web Wise Kids’ BeSeen app</a> will be entered in the Next Generation: Kids &amp; Creative Technology category. <br /><br />We are so excited that <a href="http://webwisekids.org/usa/">BeSeen</a> is continuing to receive recognition in our communities and helping to spread awareness to help teach our youth to be safer online.
