We Can Help Kids Be Good Digital Citizens

Knowing the basics of good digital citizenship is essential for today’s kids—and far too important to be stuck behind a paywall. That’s why we've teamed up with Google on Be Internet Awesome,  a free, dig cit curriculum with everything teachers need to help kids learn to be safe, more confident explorers of the online world.

Pear Deck educators worked with Google to create custom, interactive presentations to accompany the Be Internet Awesome lessons. Designed for use in the classroom, each presentation provides teachers with a simple way to introduce a concept related to digital literacy and guide students through related activities.
