Minecraft has a new theme world and more on safety for Safer Internet Day on Xbox.
Xbox is introducing a new Minecraft Education theme world as part of today's Safer Internet Day. In this world, players learn how to protect their personal information.
Find out how Xbox is making online communities more pleasant to communicate with, and how parents can set safety preferences for their children.
Privacy Prodigy is a game-based learning experience for Minecraft educators from Xbox. It's aimed at people aged 7 to 18, and helps them understand privacy.
The Privacy Prodigy program consists of a series of exercises in which players choose how to handle sensitive data and who should have access to it. This way, young people learn how to deal with different kinds of information and how to classify it.
Privacy Prodigy, a part of Minecraft Education's CyberSafe series, follows on from Home Sweet Hmm, a Minecraft world from last year that was a creative introduction to cybersecurity for kids aged 7 to 12.
Xbox's online communities are managed via Two Hat's AI-powered Community Sift platform, which filters information from text, pictures, and videos.
Native speakers who understand formal and informal language, as well as cultural and regional idioms, create, curate, and maintain data that allows the platform to determine which language is offensive and which game slang is or is part of its own culture. A sentence, an emoji, or a sequence of numbers can be harmless and typical of everyday language in another region, but they may have a completely different, even harmful meaning.
In the extensive article on Xbox Wire DACH, you can find further information about Safer Internet Day as well as suggestions and tricks for parents about safe settings for children.
