Shidonni Staying True To Safety Values With Ikeepsafe Partnership

October 4, 2009

iKeepSafe Online - Internet Safety CoalitionShidonni and the Internet Keep Safe Coalition partner to promote cyber safety for kids and offer lesson plans to teachers during cyber security awareness month

Shidonni, the award winning browser-based virtual world that provides a safe and creative Web environment for children, has partnered with the Internet Keep Safe Coalition to promote cyber safety for kids.

Thanks to this partnership an iKeepSafe custom version of Shidonni has been created at http://www2.shidonni.com/ikeepsafe/. It is supported with lesson plans and worksheets that are free for schools, and also provides class management tools and guidance for teachers.

“True to our values, we are delighted to extend support for safer online experiences for children around the world,” said Ido Mazursky, Shidonni’s CEO. “Next to our ongoing goals of providing creative fun to children everywhere, partnering with iKeepSafe and Faux Paw is a critical step in Shidonni’s commitment to the Internet safety of children.”

iKeepSafe President Marsali Hancock echoed those sentiments.

“The best time to educate youth is when they are young and just learning to participate in online communities,” Hancock said. “We are excited about our partnership with Shidonni because children not only learn how to create and participate in the virtual world, but they also learn how to be ethical, responsible and reliant cyber citizens.”

June 11, 2009

Both our RD leader and our co founder and CTO had their first babies over the last few week (did you read our Shidonni twitter account?)   . Congratulations ! . I am not sure when they have managed to get the new features ready for….. (tadadada) next week !

Sometime over the next week we will issue new games, new activities and a special surprise which you’ll be able to see only on Fridays (can you guess what it is ?)

We are preparing some cool activities for your summer break. Shidonni is all about creativity and imagination so some cool events and drawing companions are on the way. We would love to know what games you’d like to see and what activities you want in.

What do users say ?

March 31, 2009

Hi Everyone,

As you may have seen, we got loads of new things to show you. 

User Joey Gilles sums it up best:

Just the other day a new game came out along with a new feature

1. the feature is you can now send books 

2.the new game is were you have to match colors to make them go away

and just keep your Eyes peeled for more surprises soon

 

Yes. We are upgrading the book, so you can share it with Friends. There are new moves and behaviours to the animals and it is becoming a cool place to create more great activities with your animals and worlds.

The “bubble” game is nothing less than addictive. You’ll get the rules quickly and we are sure you’ll have hours of fun setting lines of colors together.

Have Fun !
