Janice’s boy Jackson, now age 11, has played Club Penguin for a few years, but my 5 and 7 year old girls hadn’t yet spent much time online.
So when I was invited to attend the Club Penguin Summit to learn more about kids online safety along with a special presentation about cyberbullying, I decided to go.
Wow, am I ever glad I attended!
I learned an incredible amount about how Club Penguin acts as a safe and fun introduction to social media and online gaming. I tweeted non-stop during the 2 day event and published a a quick post on the first night of the event.
As you read through the following story, you will join us on the journey inside Club Penguin, see the headquarters and learn from the presentations by the leadership team. I’ve included most of the presentation slides except those we were asked not to share because of trade secrets or privacy restrictions.
