Be Internet Awesome (Overview)

One of the highlights of 2017 at Google is we launched Be Internet Awesome , our latest effort to help families navigate the online world more safely . Be Internet Awesome is a multifaceted program designed to teach kids how to be safe and confident explorers of the online world. As more young users come online we aim to help make digital safety knowledge as accessible as possible. That’s why as part of Be Internet Awesome we’ve developed a fun, free web-based game called Interland , best suited for 8-11 year old kids, that lets kids put fundamental lessons of digital safety into practice in a way they enjoy learning. Be Internet Awesome also includes a curriculum, which was developed with the Internet Keep Safe Coalition. Both the game and curriculum are focused on helping kids understand fundamental online skills and etiquette, including: • Share with Care (Online Reputation) • Don’t fall for fake (Phishing and Scams) • Secure your secrets (Privacy and Security) • It's cool to be kind (Online Harassment) • When in doubt, talk it out (Reporting Inappropriate Content) We worked with the Family Online Safety Institute and ConnectSafely as well to build a program that aims to encourage parents, educators and kids alike to exhibit all the traits that comprise “Awesome” online: to be Smart, Alert, Strong, Kind and Brave. The program has also been awarded the Seal of Alignment by the International Society for Technology in Education.
