More Gov & Teachers take notice of safety

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has teamed with the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) team to launch a nationwide education campaign that includes the release and distribution of a booklet, A Parents Guide to Video Games, parental Controls and Online Safety, to the all 26,000 PTAs.  The campaign encourages PTAs to educate parents about the ESRB’s rating system and parental control technology available for various gaming systems among, and how to use the equipment.  The booklet can also be downloaded (for free) in English and Spanish via the PTA and ESRB websites.  Additionally, a free webcast featuring the heads of both organizations and others, will take place tomorrow night at 7p.  The webcast will offer explanations of the ESRB ratings system, information on setting up parental controls for a range of major gaming systems, as well as a discussion on online gaming safety
