Be Internet Awesome is a very good platform that teaches kids the fundamentals of digital citizenship and online safety. This is basically a program developed in collaboration between Google and other safety platforms such as Internet Keep Safe Coalition, ConnectSafely, and Family Online Safety Institute. Be Internet Awesome provides a wide variety of digital citizenship resources for kids, teachers and educators that include lesson plans, guidelines, classroom activities, and several other  downloadable materials.

Be Awesome Internet also offers a number of interesting tools to use with students. For instance, Interland is a collection of four online adventure games kids can play to help them practice key elements of digital safety. There is also a curriculum designed specifically for educators. It features the required tools and methods for teaching the fundamentals of digital safety. ‘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 are lesson plans for the five topics, with activities and worksheets that were designed to complement Interland.’
