Peter Packet is a game from NetAid and Cisco, that is geared toward children in an effort to bring them to social awareness. Peter Packet is an action figure that gives the players data about social challenges around the world. Players are given information about clean water problems in Haiti, education in India and creating opportunities for girls, and preventing AIDS in Zimbabwe. Along the way it also teaches the children about the Internet with a lot of terminology along the way. Therefore, it can be a bit confusing because there seems to be too many factors that are unrelated going on. However, I did feel that it had interesting factual information about these world social problems. This game is geared toward kids, having a cartoon, arcade type feel the music provided is entertaining and would help keep the interest of the players.
When this site first opened it allowed the participants to raise money to help the global causes (only for ten days), so it was considered one of the first online service learning. It no longer offers this option, but you can still play the game. At this point I think the game is marketed more as an tool for children to get familiar with the Internet, but it does still have information about the three social problems mentioned above.
