Education

Ages 8 to 12

Discuss how this animated short addresses issues of conformity and identity. Explore whether people’s online personas accurately represent or approximate their real-life personality; is this why we have user names or avatars? Debate whether individuals are now too “connected” online to actually form meaningful connections with others. Explain whether Monsieur Pug has lost his way in attempting to be just like everyone else. Does this film have something to say about those who refuse to use social media or who distrust it?
