Results of School Trials
We have evaluated Being Safety Smart in schools with teachers, parents and children. Feedback on Being Safety Smart has been very positive, with children enjoying working through the program and wanting to play again and again. Our evaluations have shown that children on the program are much more aware of their personal safety and know how to act to keep themselves safe.
Children playing the game significantly improve their knowledge around anti abduction skills and strategies from < 60% to > 90% compared to non-participating children in the same school who only achieve < 60% correct answers to knowledge questions. In addition, children playing the game exhibit greater confidence.
Many thanks to the principal, teachers, parents and children of all the school who have participated in the trials.
