Teaching the Fundamentals of Digital Citizenship and Safety
Interland is a free, adventure-packed online game that makes learning about digital safety and citizenship interactive and fun. Kids will help their fellow Internauts combat badly behaved hackers, phishers, oversharers, and bullies by practicing the skills they need to be good digital citizens. The Be Internet Awesome curriculum gives educators the tools and methods they need to teach digital safety fundamentals. The materials developed by Google in partnership with iKeepSafe enable educators to bring the most critical teachings—and the excitement of Interland—into the classroom. Included in the curriculum, available in English and Spanish, are lesson plans for the five topics, with activities and worksheets that were designed to complement Interland.
