The Polish film "Mr. File and Mr. Folder – Internet Explorers" was created as part of the educational project "Web adventures of Mr. File and Mr. Folder" which has been conducted by NASK since 2010 in cooperation with the artistic group

The project is constantly evolving. Until now the following educational resources have been created:

  • 45-minute live performance "Web adventures of Mr. File and Mr. Folder" (2010)
  • Film "Web adventures of Mr. File and Mr. Folder" together with lesson plans (2012)
  • Exercises for children - crosswords, puzzles and colouring books (2012)
  • Audio book "Let's meet the internet" (2012)
  • Educational event "Safer Internet Alley" (2013)
  • Film "Mr. File and Mr. Folder – Internet Explorers" (2016)

Children love the fact that the characters of the video are their age: they understand material better when it shows kids like them dealing with similar every day problems.
