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, we’re 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.

Google’s new technology curriculum for grades 7-12 is completely free and a great way for teachers to develop students’ digital skills for future careers. Create with Google uses instructional videos and relatable projects to teach students how to use G Suite applications like Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

Self-paced videos deliver instruction in this "blended learning" model. Students work independently with minimal whole-class instruction and teacher planning, freeing instructors to give individualized attention and foster student growth.

Computers are invaluable tools for creative problem solving. Students gain computational thinking and programming skills, then use them to break down problems, analyze potential outcomes, and develop practical solutions.

Create with Google also empowers students to take an active role in learning. The variety of activities give everyone the opportunity to explore their interests, use their strengths, and develop important skills and ideas.

Lessons extend beyond application features and simple how-to. They are a platform for students to express ideas, collaborate with others, analyze and solve problems, and create.

Access the free curriculum today and use it in your classroom tomorrow. Everything you need to get started is at http://g.co/LetsCreate!
