"Team Savv-i takes the 9 elements of digital citizenship and brings the reader on an action-packed adventure full of mystery and suspense. The characters don’t just talk about digital citizenship, they do it! As a mother and son digital citizenship team, we agree that Team Savv-i reminds us all that we learn best by doing things together. The ultimate goal is to empower our students to be the same person both on and offline and this is the Team Savv-i message."

"This isn't another tome about heady concepts involved in digital ethics. Instead, Casper has created a rollicking read about digital citizenship, told as an adventure that should connect with Tweens everywhere. It provides a valuable, and fun, teaching tool."
Professor Emeritus Jason Ohler, author of Digital Community, Digital Citizen and The Big Ideas newsletter and co-founder of the Digital Citizenship Institute, USA
"Team Savv-i takes the reader on an adventure to discover the topics and issues of technology today. Following the path of nine elemental areas of living in a digital society, the reader learns some important lessons of interacting with these devices. This book helps to focus on the important needs of technology users today and into the future."

"Team Savv-i is an action-packed adventure and the twins at the centre of all the action have to figure out how to solve the mystery. If you are looking for a book that will teach kids about making good decisions and being problem solvers online, this book is the one for you.

The author, Casper Pieters, uses each chapter to explore ideas about digital identity. So, as kids are reading, they are learning an entire language for the internet and digital citizenship. Some of the topics are super complicated, but Pieters writes in a way that gets kids curious to know more.
What’s most interesting for me as a reader of this book is the kids are the heart of all the solutions. This book will keep your kids
hooked and help them understand their digital Future.
Two thumbs up for Team Savv-i!"
