What to expect:

“The Surfing Penguin” sees new and familiar faces return to outback Australia, as they explore and navigate their way through the digital world. Together, they overcome challenges and learn how to be the best versions of themselves online.

Through four vibrantly illustrated short stories, the following issues are addressed:

  • Viewing age-inappropriate online content
  • Cyberbullying
  • Online gaming & Trolling
  • Sharing personal information & location tracking

Each story concludes with reflection questions and an augmented reality activity – this means children can use their devices to engage with the story and characters in meaningful (and super fun) ways!

This resource compliments topics explored in “The Tweeting Galah” and can be used to further meet parts of the Digital Technologies, Protective Behaviours, Health, Literacy and ICT Capability curriculum.

There are many ways “The Surfing Penguin” can be used in a classroom – as a teacher copy, part of guided reading groups or class text. The book is designed for each child to have their own copy – space is provided after each reflection question for students to write their responses, and the augmented reality activities provide individual learning experiences such as an online game name generator and a Protective Behaviours physical warning signs colouring activity.

Recommended for children aged 7-12.

“The Surfing Penguin” is in its final stages of production and will be going to print December 2018. It is estimated printing will be complete by January 7th 2019. Pre-ordering gives you a chance to be one of the first to get your hands on a copy! Plus, free shipping.
