In this class quest students experience how difficult it can be to estimate when and with whom you do or do not share information, photos or videos (online). Through the quest, including an experiment in the classroom, students discover the consequences of sharing information. They also learn why they should think carefully about what others could do with that information. We consider the fact that everyone has different wishes and limits when it comes to putting and sharing photos and videos online. It is important to put yourself in someone else's shoes, and to take into account that that person may be in a very different position. Think before you post.
(Preparing for the topic Sexting)
- learn why it is important to be careful on social media.
- become aware of the advantages and disadvantages of social media.
- think about when information is unwanted, and know who to discuss it with.
The class quest earns in-game points. Individually, but also as a class. The points that the students, who are trained to become Cyber Agents via HackShield, determine their place on the leaderboard.
After completing each class quest, which can only be played via a Teacher Account, you as a teacher will receive a code. Students can enter this code into their individual account and receive points and a Shield. These can be found in their HackShield account.
Inspiration and deepening with this class quest
- Have students talk to their parents about sharing photos.

What does HackShield (in the Class) cost?
HackShield is free to play for all kids. HackShield in the Class is available for all schools to use - for free!
What tools and materials do I need to use HackShield in the Class?
With only a digital schoolboard you can play the Class Quests. If you don’t have a digital schoolboard, it is also possible for students to complete these missions in small groups on a tablet or computer.
I have a student who is a Cyber Agent, do I have an advantage?
You sure do! You have someone who can tell you about HackShield, the internet and online safety. If there are students in your class who are already Cyber Agents, you can assign them to tell the rest of the group what it is like to be a Cyber Agent, to trigger the others' enthusiasm and curiosity.
How do I know when there is a new Class Quest available?
When we launch a new quest, we will send you an e-mail with an update, via the teacher account you are registered with. Every month at least, a new quest will come available!
Can I skip a Class Quest and teach it another time?
Yes, that is possible. This way you always can reach out to the available lessons when cyber crime topics are, for example, a hot topic in the current news.
