Be Internet Awesome is a program from Google, designed to teach kids the fundamentals of digital citizenship and safety so they can explore the online world with confidence.
Below, Google has provided online resources for PTAs to host their own Be Internet Awesome Workshop. The goal of a Be Internet Awesome Workshop is to create an interactive event where parents and caregivers engage with one another in meaningful peer-to-peer conversations about raising children in an online world. Using the Be Internet Awesome Family Guides, provided presentations and facilitator guides, your PTA will help parents create a shared understanding of what it means to Be Internet Smart, Alert, Strong, Kind and Brave.
It’s most appropriate for elementary and middle school PTAs but would also be a great program for upper grade PTSAs to host in partnership with other schools in their area, for older students to log volunteer hours. To plan and host a Be Internet Awesome Workshop, please review the materials in the Planning Toolkit below.
Family Link is a parental controls experience that lets you decide what’s best for your family so you can help keep them safer online. With easy to use tools and resources, you can understand how your child is spending time on their device, set content restrictions, see their location, manage privacy settings, and more.
