Hackerteen: Vol. 1 free pdf This engaging graphic novel probes the modern online world where an increasing number of middle school- and high school-aged kids spend their time. Through it's sophisticated cloak-and-dagger storyline, Hackerteen teaches young readers about basic computing and Internet topics, including the potential for victimization and need for ethical behavior.Written by members of a Brazilian training company that offers classes in computer use and Internet safety to teenagers, Hackerteen stands on its own as a beautiful full-color graphic thriller with true-to-life characters and their wily nemeses. But the book is also ideal for parents and teachers who want their children and students to understand the risks of using the Internet and the proper ways to behave online.Among the advantages of Hackerteen: * The book gradually introduces and expands upon computing and Internet concepts as the story progresses * Through it's focus on ethical online behavior, the book teaches readers to protect themselves against spyware, phishing, and other dangers * Links posted at the bottom of the pages point readers to educational tips and other material * The values of the protagonists provide models for ethical behaviorWhen the characters in the story have to deal with choices presented to them by their use of this powerful technology, it underscores the need for knowledge of the Internet and respect for what they learn. Concepts such as the Domain Name System and the Open Document Format are casually mention early on, and then take shape as important topics worthy of study as they are woven into the plot.Despite a strong market for books on basic Internet topics, Hackerteen is the only one to address teens and preteens exclusively. It's a book whose time has definitely arrived.
