Have you ever heard about “Geo-location” or “Geo-tagging”?
Most people would answer yes, but few would really know what it is all about, even less are able to explain to kids. Geo-location is fun, effective and practical. Geo-location can be very dangerous. There are several internet post for parents and geeks on the subject, but I could hardly find anything for kids. I have produced a video animation and discovery guide for elementary kids on the topic.
The guide was originally designed to assist school resource officers but is still a wonderful tool for you as educators and parents. The first three pages of the guide are the article (based on the video narration).
It is a wonderful introduction for kids on Geo-Tagging; how it works, what it is for, how it impacts their life and the danger of geo-location. You can read the internet version of the article here.
The booklet has spectacular illustrations as does the video. Following the article, you’ll find two pages “My Safety Tips on Geo-Tagging”
The booklet is available for free to the registered user of this site.
