Be Internet Awesome

Be Internet Awesome teaches kids the fundamentals of digital citizenship and online safety so they can explore the online world with confidence.

To make the most of the Internet, kids need to be prepared to make smart decisions. The Be Internet Awesome program is available in English and Spanish, and its curriculum includes lesson plans, activities, worksheets, and ready-to-present Pear Decks to give educators the tools and methods they need to teach online safety and citizenship fundamentals.The curriculum is complemented by Interland - an 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. For parents, Be Internet Awesome provides a Family Guide to help talk about--and practice--digital citizenship and online safety at home. The materials were developed by Google in partnership with iKeepSafe, Family Online Safety Institute, and The Net Collaborative and honored by AASL among the 2018 Best Websites for Teaching & Learning.
