R U A Cyber Detective is a digital citizenship game for students in Stage 2. Students take on the role of a junior detective at the Cyber Detective Agency. Assigned an urgent case involving stolen identities, students are challenged to use their digital citizenship skills in a range of mock situations, including chat rooms and using webcams, as they race against time to recover the identities from Dr Hiss. At the conclusion of the game, students make a five-point guide about staying safe online and receive a Junior Detective Award.
