I am glad to have an opportunity to write about something unique and unusual. It’s a project OVCE.sk (ovce=sheep) organized by eSLOVENSKO NGO as a part of ZODPOVEDNE.sk information campaign (zodpovedne=responsibly) about use of internet and mobile phones safer.
Main part of this OVCE.sk project is a new Slovak cartoon about sheep placed in roles of young internet users dealing with threats of internet. Sheppard, sheep, wolf and other characters are displaying situation that might be dangerous for children to teach them how to protect their privacy.
There are 4 episodes available in various language versions including Slovak version with English subtitles.
And I would like to draw your attention to these episodes right here embedded from YOUTUBE (posted legally :-)):
First one is called COATLESS and deals with online publishing of naked photos
Second one with name WHITE SHEEP is about discrimination and racism online
Third episode SECRET FRIEND is coming with paedophilia and grooming question
And last one (up to now) is DON’T DANCE WITH THE WOLF about photo and video misuse
OVCE.sk project is not cartoon only. Homepage OVCE.sk provides a lot of information about online privacy of children. Downloadable content is full of posters, games, wallpapers, screensavers and ringtones with OVCE.sk themes to be constantly present in life of child as a mentor of privacy issues.
This project is definitely something you cannot miss to see and tell to your children about.
