I’d bet I’m not the only teacher who’s looked at my room full of students and thought, “This looks like any other classroom on the planet.” I strive to avoid that; my students are special and I want them to feel it every day.

By the time the average American kid reaches double digits, they’re not just avid users of the Internet but likely carrying around an Internet-connected device in their pocket wherever they go. Talk to any one of them and you’ll see how excited they are about the opportunities this provides for fun, learning, creativity and more. But as kids are using technology more throughout their daily lives – at home, in the classroom, and everywhere in between – it’s important that they’re prepared to make smart decisions about online behavior. To kick off Internet Safety Month, Google is announcing Be Internet Awesome, a program that teaches kids the fundamentals of digital safety and citizenship so they can explore the online world with confidence.

In addition to a robust classroom curriculum for educators and resources for parents, the program includes Interland, an adventure-packed online game that teaches the key lessons of digital safety and citizenship through hands-on practice in a format kids already love: gaming. You can learn more and download tools at https://goo.gl/FfdauC.
