Keeping Kids Safe

Keeping Kids Safe online is a film retelling the fable of “The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.” The animation teaches children that people online may not be who they seem. Funded by a Merit Grant from The Ferris Foundation, the project is intended to instill behaviors in children that will help prevent them from becoming victims of cyber predators. Students in Assistant Professor of Social Work Elizabeth Post’s class wrote the film’s script. Members of the Alpha Psi Omega Theater Honor Society provided voiceovers. A team from the Music and Entertainment Business program, led by Assistant Professor Paul Kwant, is providing the film’s musical score, and Sports Entertainment Hospitality Management Adjunct Instructor and university Coalition Against Slavery co-chair Karen Kiio provided operational assistance. The video animation was produced by Ferris State University 1983 alum Duane Weed from DW Video in Howard City.   SOURCE: http://www.ferris.edu/business/cybersafe/
